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.
