Pol said these lizards eat rotten things. The Thai people regard the name of this creature as an abuse. Experts say this lizard can grow up to nine feet long. These lizards have now reached the Americas and are found in many parts of Florida. The US Department of Wildlife is concerned that these giant lizards pose a major threat to other organisms.
These lizards are also smuggled into the United States from the Philippines. According to a report, the price of a lizard can range from Rs 70 thousand to Rs 2 lakh. These lizards depend on water and can swim very far. For this reason, these lizards are also found on many remote islands.
