Giant monitor lizard invades Thai home


What happens when you find your house being attached by a huge monitor lizard? Of course, in Thailand you simply record the whole incident and post it on Facebook!

Attanai Thaiyuanwong had a huge surprise on Sunday when he returned home in Nonthaburi, Thailand, to discover the large reptile trying to break into his house.

The intruder was a giant monitor lizard, seemingly as tall as an adult, standing on its hind legs with its mouth around the door handle.

In Thai culture, monitor lizards are said to bring good fortune to anyone who encounters them. Known as “Tua Ngern Tua Thong”, Thais also call the reptiles “Hia”

According to a translation by Coconuts Bangkok, a man can be heard shouting in Thai, “Hia is in our house. It’s ******* huge!”.

A woman then said: “They say if you throw a coin at it, it will go away!”

The group of people debated behind the camera what to do, until the lizard flicked its tail sharply, when everyone screamed.

It’s not yet known if the lizard was successfully moved, but Thaiyuanwong has been updating his Facebook page, so it seems that the creature did eventually return to wherever it came from.
