A homeowner in South Africa was surprised to find a large monitor lizard taking a shower in the garden sprinkler on Saturday.

The reptile appeared to be having a drink and also cooling off in the water.

"The first time I've ever seen this," the filmer wrote online.

Worldwide there are 79 different species of monitor lizard.

They appear to be relatively intelligent. Studies feeding one species varying numbers of snails showed that they can distinguish numbers up to six.
