Massive Monitor Lizard Sneaks Into Unsuspecting Tourist’s Tent
During a safari trip at South Africa's Kruger National Park, this group of tourists experienced the fright of their lives after a massive monitor lizard crept straight into their tent! This national park is one of the largest in Africa, and it covers a vast area. All sorts of creatures can be seen there, and it is referred to as the International Man and Biosphere Reserve, or simply ‘The Biosphere’. Knowing this fact, would you dare to explore it?
So there is no surprise that this curious reptile wanted to check out the tourist’s tent, and maybe even find a tasty snack in there. There are 114 different species of reptile in this national park, including black mamba, African rock pythons and 3 thousand types of crocodiles. So this tourist actually got lucky that none of the abovementioned animals decided to pay her a visit.
In this amusing clip a large monitor lizard is seen slowly entering inside a tourist’s tent, spooky the woman inside to loud screams. Actually, the massive critter was not aggressive and was casually strolling in the area, exploring the tents in detail. Can you imagine being inside the tent at the moment when a huge critter decides to show up uninvited at the front porch? What would you have done in a situation like this?
The sneaky critter was filmed making a slow progress towards the tent, leaving the filmer in hesitation as for what might happen next. It can be heard in the video that he is actually warning those inside that they are about to have a visitor. Of course, they know nothing about this visitor so their reaction is delayed to the moment they actually spot the massive critter.
Lizards can be scary indeed, especially when you least expect them to show up, and they do, in a their well-known sneaky manner. In another video, a woman screams with fear after a gecko lizard is knocked from the wall at her home in Roi Et, Thailand and it runs along the ground. We may laugh at woman’s reaction to the intruder, but if we were in her shoes, we would scream our lungs out loud the same way, that’s for sure! Her response is legit for something so unexpected, so we cannot blame her!
However, this is not the first time a monitor lizard spooked someone. In another scenario, a sneaky lizard terrified office workers after it fell through the ceiling and onto their desk. Reportedly, the five-feet-long reptile was heard scampering around the roof inside the accounts department of the company in Chachoegsao, Thailand, on April 6. Of course, it caused panic in the office, causing workers to scream their way out of the office while the lizard ran amok through the office. Thankfully, rescue workers arrived soon and caught the Asian water monitor before repairing the roof, after which they released it back into the wild. Apparently, these creatures have the reputation of giving the fright to unsuspecting people. Beware folks!
