Shoppers Freak Out After Giant Lizard Storms Into 7-Eleven Store

Published

Shoppers at a Thailand 7-Eleven store got more than they bargained for when a giant monitor lizard walked in and climbed store shelves.

The now-viral video of the lizard climbing to the top of a shelf and sprawling out near an ice machine was captured by customer Narumpa Tangsin recorded in Nakhon Pathom, a town just outside Bangkok, Thailand, according to several news outlets.

A store employee called the police who then brought reptile handlers to catch the Godzilla-esque creature. The handlers dragged the lizard out of the store and lured it towards a nearby brush.

Asian Monitor lizards tend to live in canals and ponds in considerably humid climates. It’s unknown why the monitor wandered into the 7-Eleven but it could have been looking for food due to recent months of dry weather with little rain.

Monitors can live up to 22 years in captivity and some can reach almost six feet in length. It’s the second largest lizard in the world behind the Komodo dragon.
