Back in December, a video of a security guard throwing a monitor lizard out of a shopping mall in Kota Kinabalu went viral online. At that time, the post sparked numerous debates among netizens on social media.
Just recently, another similar incident involving the reptile has also gone viral. The incident reportedly took place at the parking lot of a Lotus’s (formerly known as Tesco) supermarket in Ara Damansara.
The video capturing the incident was uploaded on the TikTok page @fire_fighter_forever over the weekend. It shows a group of firemen’s successful attempt in catching the gigantic lizard, which was roaming around the area. “Pity the lizard. Maybe it also wants to shop for its daily needs,” the caption reads.
At the time of writing (Monday, 20th June) the TikTok post has garnered over 4.6 million views on the platform. Many netizens also responded by leaving tons of remarks on the replies section of the post. In this case, while some thought that the video didn’t look real and was edited, there were also others who expressed their concern upon knowing that the lizard might have just lost its habitat.
To quote one commentator, “I feel so bad, it looks lost and frightened.” Another one commented, “Doesn’t this mean their habitat is threatened? A lot of animals were seen in places where they shouldn’t be, to which the admin of the TikTok page replied by saying, “So true.”
Apart from the two aforementioned incidents, another video also went viral previously, showing a TikToker’s amused reaction after encountering a monitor lizard emerging from The Mines Lake. Watch it here.
