Some Floridians have a new neighbor in town, and no one’s inviting him over for dinner. It’s a Six foot long Asian Monitor lizard that’s been roaming the town of Davie, Florida and no one seems to be able to catch it!
Since this story wentt viral there have been dozens of sightings in different areas of Florida. I have personally seen one next to a lake in West Boca (30 miles north)
Wikipedia has a few specs on these things. Adults rarely exceed 1.5–2 m (4.9–6.6 ft) in length, but the largest specimen on record, from Sri Lanka, measured 3.21 m (10.5 ft). A common mature weight of V. salvator can be 19.5 kg (43 lb). 10 freaking feet!!! Nope Nope Nope on the nope train to Nopesville!
According to experts, while they’re not known to be deadly to humans, but an Asian water monitor’s bite can be very painful.
