Huge ‘Godzilla’ lizard tries to break into man’s home – freaks out local dogs

THIS enormous lizard has been dubbed “Godzilla” after a shocked man found it trying to climb over his gate and into his home.

Long Cherng Yee photographed the monitor lizard crawling up the gate of his home in the state of Johor in Malaysia.

He shared the pictures on Facebook, joking: “You might have pet dogs at home but I have a small crocodile here!”

Local stray dogs soon caught wind of the reptilian invader – nicknamed “Godzilla” by local media – and ran to the scene to bark at the huge lizard.

Long called out local officials to take the monitor lizard away but, alarmed at the attention, it ran off and was last seen disappearing into a drainage channel.

His photographs made a big impression on online commentators such as Mike Loh who commented: “That lizard is so awesome” and Lim Kian Siang who added: “What a big one!”

Many superstitious viewers thought it might be a sign of good luck and urged Long to buy a lottery ticket, including Yan Yee who predicted: “Opportunity is coming”.


Meanwhile Eling Chua offered: “Let’s make big fortune together.”

And Long clearly favoured this interpretation of the reason for his unusual visitor, replying: “I think the lizard is here to give me money!”

Fictional monster Godzilla first appeared in the 1954 Japanese film of the same name and went onto become a global icon.

The beast’s latest incarnation, Michael Dougherty’s 2019 movie, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, was released at the end of May.

This comes after a Brit was given permission to walk his 5ft lizard in the park — so long as he put it on a lead.
