Comparisons between the intruding Asian Water Monitor Lizard were also made to Godzilla were made after it tore up a display in a Thaisupermarket, climbing up shelves and causing boxes to tumble down.

It appears that it was looking for a resting spot, as when at the summit of the shelving unit, the lizard made itself comfortable. His conduct stressed his fellow shoppers, who are heard screaming in the background.

The video was first shared yesterday morning, since then the travel agent Mundo Namoda deleted their tweet, but before it did it gathered over 77,000 views and 3000 retweets.
