Giant monitor lizard walks in to supermarket

Shoppers in Thailand were left terrified when the huge reptile took up residence inside the shop.
Long queues and empty shelves are about the worst problems that most of us will ever encounter when visiting the supermarket, but for shoppers visiting a grocery store in Thailand recently there was something far more sinister waiting to greet them when they walked through the door.

Footage uploaded online of the incident shows how the huge monitor lizard had stood guard at the entrance while brave employees tried to shoo it outside using cardboard signs.

Terrified shoppers attempting to enter the shop ended up standing back in surprise as the creature was gradually coaxed back out through the door and in to the store's car park.

The video, which was filmed in Ban Khlong Nung, can be viewed below.

"Giant" lizard.  Heh. Refused to leave because he was there to buy stuff.  What a bunch of bigots, forcing him out of the store because they don't like the way he looks.  Doesn't his money spend exactly as everyone else's?

“Mark, are the allegations true that you’re secretly a lizard? Um... I’m gonna, I’m gonna have to go with ‘no’ on that. I am not a lizard,” Zuckerberg said seeming oddly nervous

I guess these lizards aren't that dangerous.  He certainly wasn't being aggressive in response to being pushed out the door and being refused service.

Sounds like the start of a joke.

Dang! I would be startled and afraid too... Here's a gator wanting to shop at WalMart.

Those are faked videos.  Alligators obviously don't move like that, it's CG. (sorry, a throw back to the idiocy in a thread about the alligator on a golf course in Florida)

Aww he's so cute. Yes they can be dangerous at that size not just the teeth/jaw but also the claws and tail can do damage
