 Need help IDing this monitor

Here on Guam we have V indicus in the wild. Every once in awhile I’ll see hatchlings outside of my house. I usually leave them be. But this one caught my eye. It looks so different from a mangrove monitor. Can someone ID it for me.

The hatchling on the left is your typical V indicus. The one on the right is what I’m trying to ID.
