Massive monitor lizard found inside Thai home

PHUKET, THAILAND (WTXF/STORYFUL) -- This video shows the aftermath of heavy rains in Thailand as the wet weather there sometimes forces wild animals to seek shelter indoors.

A huge monitor lizard was discovered inside a residential bathroom on the island of Phuket in Thailand on August 3.

Workers from local animal rescue charity the Kusoldharm Foundation struggled with the animal for half an hour to get it under control.

The lizard weighs-in at 45lbs and is three feet long.

It is considered large for its species and the workers had to wrestle with it before it was captured and released on another part of the island.

The video was uploaded on August 3.
