'The monitor lizard stayed on the shelf for an hour. The rescue team arrived and chased it away. But they didn't catch it, it just ran away into the bushes.'

'I've never seen a monitor lizard that big in my life, so it was a surprise for one to come in the shop.'

A customer, Narumpa Tangsin who had seen these creatures around at university said, “I only stopped at the shop to buy some food and then saw the huge monitor lizard inside. I wanted to buy a drink but the animal was too close to the drinks aisle."

'They're dangerous animals, especially when they're angry, so I stayed back and recorded it on my phone. I guess that shops have everything, even for lizards.'

As scared as the customers were, the internet found the whole situation hilarious. One remembered an old meme of a smaller lizard 'Marvin' who had entered a USA 7-11.

While others loved Narumpa Tangsin's response of taking a selfie with the giant lizard. 

It is speculated that the lizard had come into the store in search of food as the weather gets drier and food outside becomes scarce.

These lizards are not harmless, have a venomous bite and can become seriously dangerous when aggressive. They usually feed on frog, fish and snakes.
