Huge Monitor Lizard Raids Supermarket In Search Of Food
Newsflare captures the terrifying moment a rampaging giant monitor lizard raided a supermarket and climbed on shelves in search of food.
The 6ft long reptile emerged from a nearby canal and ran into the 7-Eleven store, sparking panic on April 6th in Nakhon Pathom, Thailand.
Staff and customers hid behind the counter while the beast climbed onto shelves and tossed several cartons of milk onto the ground.
A worried shop assistant called the police who arrived with reptile handlers to snare the ferocious monitor lizard shortly after lunchtime.
Shocked customer Narumpa Tangsin said: ‘I only stopped at the shop to buy some food and then saw the huge monitor lizard inside. I wanted to buy a drink but the animal was too close to the drinks aisle. They’re dangerous animals, especially when they’re angry, so I stayed back and recorded it on my phone. I guess that shops have everything, even for lizards.’
The rescue team arrived at the shop on the outskirts of the capital Bangkok and dragged the monitor lizard out of the store before ushering it away into nearby undergrowth.
Despite its rampage through the grocery shop, the monitor lizard had not managed to take any food. The unusually large creature is believed to have struggled to find food outside, following months of dry weather with little rain which has lead to many canals and lakes drying up.
Asian water monitor lizards live in canals and ponds in large cities in Thailand where they feed on fish, snakes, frogs and scraps of food left by humans.
They are aggressive when threatened and have a mildly venomous bite which sometimes carries harmful bacteria.

StormStock Provides Stormy Weather For New GMC Hummer EV Commercial
Leo Burnett Detroit chose content from Prairie Pictures’ StormStock collection to add spice to their new GMC Hummer Electric Vehicle (EV) SUV commercial "New Revolution."
The dramatic footage was shot by StormStock founder and cinematographer Martin Lisius. "The few seconds that appear in the new spot required hundreds of hours, and thousands of miles to capture," Lisius said.
The imagery features "electrical storms" Lisius captured in Texas and Kansas on 6K video and Super 35mm film. "These types of storms are highly electrified and provide the perfect visual for a powerful, electric vehicle like this," he said. Although viewers may find Lisius’ storms "shocking," he appreciates them for their calming ability. "I know all heck is breaking loose beneath them, but from my vantage point, miles away, they are actually quite peaceful and beautiful, like a fireworks show with muted rumbles of thunder. That’s unless they are heading my way."
Home movie film of John Lennon and Yoko Ono is released in a remix of the song ’Look at Me’ from the John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band – The Ultimate Collection album.
On 9th June 1968, at John’s home ‘Kenwood’ in Weybridge, Surrey, John & Yoko began a collaborative period of creative film-making that would end up lasting four years, beginning with two films called ‘Film No. 5’ (‘Smile’) (conceived by Yoko) and ‘Two Virgins’ (conceived by John & Yoko) that would premiere at the Chicago Film Festival later that year. The filming involved specialist high-speed 16mm cameras (in those days mainly used for filming scientific experiments) operated by William Wareing and his team.
Between takes, Wareing also filmed three rolls of ‘home movie’ Standard 8 film – one in black and white, the other two in colour.
These Standard 8 film reels are presented here, side-by-side, for the first time, accompanied by John’s song ‘Look At Me‘ from the John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band – The Ultimate Collection album.
