monitor lizard

Animal services officers are usually used to residents complaining about huge reptiles only for them to come to the scene where it is and find a small garden snake. Well they were in for a shock today when in a condo complex in Riverside, California, a 5-foot Monitor lizard was wandering around.

"She said she saw it and almost jumped back in her truck," said John Welsh, spokesman for Riverside County Animal Services. "The residents were freaking out because here's the Godzilla-like creature walking down the sidewalk." Selter managed to get a catch pole – a long pole with a loop at the end that's used to handle vicious dogs – around the animal's neck, Welsh said. It was docile at first, but then it started hissing.

So a shock circumstances for the animal services authorities and reports say that they guess it was somebody's pet as lizards that big don't exist in that climate usually.
