Godzilla vs. King ”was not the only giant four-legged drama this week.
A massive Asian water monitor intimidated shoppers after walking on a “King of the Monsters” ramp through a 7-Eleven in Bangkok, Thailand. The original video tweet of the incident received nearly a million views before it was deleted.
The scary clip that has been converted to Facebook shows the monster reptile scaling a milk shelf, knocking cartons off and making spectators shout in shock.
“The shelves are broken! Oh my God, ”you can hear a voice spread over the reptile’s interloper, which according to Everything Reptiles is up to 8 meters long and is the world̵
The clip ends with the water monitor resting on top of the shelf, close to the ceiling, while the spectators guffaw in the background.
Fortunately, despite their enormous size, the opportunistic predators do not pose a threat to adults, but instead choose to celebrate everything from eggs to small mammals and meat, according to experts at the University of Michigan Museum of Zoology. (However, a dead child was found partially eaten by screens in southern Thailand in May 2020.)
Nevertheless, the scaly shopping trip left social media in a dizzy.
“Godzilla are real guys,” a spectator wrote on social media. Another described the scene as a “nightmare.”
“When you’m hungry, you should visit 7-Eleven, right?” snorted a comedian on social media, referring to the grocery chain’s motto.
It is unknown why the lizard first entered the store, although some speculate that it tried to escape the humid outdoor temperatures.
This is not the first time a monitor key has given people a scare. In 2016, disposal shutters overran Bangkok’s Lumpini Park and damaged the flora and surprising visitors, the Bangkok Post reported.
Meanwhile, in a now viral clip from a Japanese game show, a screen was fixed on female contestants wearing meat slices on their heads.
