Massive Monitor Lizard Captured In Davie After Months On The Run

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission agents have finally captured an Asian water monitor lizard that has been on the loose and prowling around a Davie neighborhood for months.

Neighbors in the Nob Hill community were concerned that the large lizard, which is around 6 feet long and weighs about 100 pounds, could pose a threat to pets and small children.

Though not known to be deadly to humans, an Asian water monitor's bite can be very painful. 

Neighbors say a woman who lives nearby said the lizard is her pet. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said it's legal to keep the animals as pets.
