- This isn't Godzilla versus Kong - it's just a hungry, 6-foot-long monitor lizard hanging out at a minimart.
- The lizard raided a 7-Eleven in Thailand this week, clambering onto a shelf of products and knocking over food packets on its way up.
- It seemed oblivious to the screams of shocked customers and perched itself atop the shelf, surveying the store and basking under the warmth of the ceiling lights.
- A woman can be heard screaming in the video, "Is he hungry? Does he want to eat?" while other employees panic about how the "shelves were ruined."
- A Facebook user named Jejene Narumpa first uploaded the video, which has been shared about 5,700 times.
- According to USA Today, the lizard emerged from a nearby canal and decided to pop to the shops in search of some tasty treats.
- Animal control in Nakhon Pathom, Thailand, where the incident took place, tranquilized the monitor lizard and returned it safely to the wild.
