Huge Lizard Seen Scaling the Side of Florida Home

Video of a giant lizard scaling the window of a Florida home has terrified the internet.

Florida resident, Jocelyn Penson was visiting her son in the city of Apopka when she received a visit from a Godzilla stand in.

She says she spotted the huge, dog-sized lizard scaling the window, posting a video on Facebook with the description:

"OMG! Look at this! ... It looks like Godzilla to me!"

Despite the comparison, this lizard isn't a fictional monster out to destroy the city.

According to the Fish and Wildlife Commission, it is a Savannah Monitor Lizard, a native species to sub-Saharan Africa.

Experts suggest its unusual appearance in Florida was likely because it was either a former pet or had been freed from a wildlife sanctuary by a hurricane.
