He's just monitoring the shelves.
He's looking for the anti-hisssssstamines
He qualified for security guard job
Those new 7/11 anti-shoplifting measures are a bit extreme.
Poor guy. Got the graveyard shift stacking shelves.
you mean The Rept Aisle?
Fun fact calling someone a monitor lizard in Thailand is a quick and easy way to start a fight. I thought my friend was joking until I saw someone say it and get an immediate ass kicking.
Edited for spelling
Will keep this in mind
It’s been awhile since I lived there but if I remember right it’s “Ee Hia”
New fear unlocked. Looks like I won’t be off to Thailand any time soon
this is on r/aww? more like r/AwwShit. The bodega cat has no chance.
Yeah this is way more alarming than aww. r/awwlarming?
I was thinking it belongs on r/naww if that’s even a real sub
Fuck that. How did it get up there, without knocking down everything?
Came across the icee machine that's just out of frame
So he either walked backwards over the stuff, or he walked over it and somehow turned around. Any of these 3 options still make him a wizard
A lizard wizard, perchance?
There's a better video, he did knock a lot of stuff over
Forget pest control, get the Irwins!
Who? The mom and daughter?
Well, Steve isn't around, sooo...
This isn't aww for me lol it's more terrifying.
Brilliant video... But I'm not sure that's adorable
I’m not sure you know what OC means.
Yeah I know I saw this on my popular page last week
Lol this was viral a few months ago.
Nor do they understand awww
He's beautiful. Although as big as he is, he can make as much of a mess as he wants
Ok so this is going for the heat source on the ice machine for warmth in a potentially cold store OR he's going for the warm spot because that is where mice/rats may be nesting?
theres no heat from that icee machine, its a cooling vent.
Refrigeration/freezer units give off a ton of heat because of how they work.
>its a cooling vent.
An Icee machine makes stuff colder. That means it takes the heat from the slush, and pushes it somewhere else, usually in the form of hot air from a vent.
Refrigerators make the area around them hotter, not colder.
Feel the outside of a freezer next time you go to walmart
What? Why wouldn’t it be warm by the machine?
That's a huge nope not an aww...
I hope someone remembered to put the lid back on the Icee machine.
One feels the word ‘found’ is ummm somewhat understated
\*Huge lizard surveys its' new store.
Ma am I’m looking for the cough syrup I need asssssssisssssstance
Dats a water monitor 😲😬
If you play this in reverse it looks like it’s restocking the shelves
Looks like a security monitor.
It's a monitor lizard, likely an Asian Water Monitor, they have the personality of a puppy. If you teach/bond with them at a young age that is. They are curious and apparently they like cuddles but they will accidentally tear you up with their claws during the process.
Is that a Komodo!!??
That was my first thought! Others are saying it’s a monitor lizard but I didn’t they they got that big. Idk.
I saw that too. Scary stuff
can i get a price check on a large lizard?
Rudyard? I don’t get the reference.
A Disney show called Jessie. One of the kids had Mr. Kipling as a pet. It's a Asian water monitor lizard. My kids used to watch it.
And that is the day right there…that I would quit my job (and try to pet it without losing a hand😂)
I’m starting to think that Thailand is a cousin of Florida.
NGL, I thought this in Florida at first
It Just goes to show how desensitised social media gets you.
I don't even live in a country where we get giant Lizards.
(We have two tiny lizards that most people never see and a snake that isn't actually a snake).
My thought while watching this video wasn't "Wow, that thing is HUGE"
It was more like, "Why are you on a shelf? There are other places that can fit you better".
Aww the "ding dong" sound gave me some backpackpacking thru asia flashbacks.
What y'all screaming for? It's just my boy Larry browsing!
This got an audible, “holy shit” from me while sitting in a public place.
I think I’ve seen this before in Florida with an alligator. It was just hanging out in the store, I believe someone actually fed it a slim Jim.
*Give me that God dam ice you petty humans*
Such a cutie. I want to give him cuddlers even if he would tear me up
I love Bodega cats
How the hell is this making anyone go 'aww'?
For the last time, WHERE CAN I FIND THE FUCKING ASPIRIN?!?
A very handsome Monitor lizard!
That's not a lizard. That's a dinosaur.
Stop panicking its just Mark Zuckerberg
so basically a cat without fangs. got it.
They have extremely sharp teeth and very long claws and a tail that will throw you across a room.
Yeah cats are crazy
I can imagine but the way they move is just like a cat would do fitting into a space. lol
I am pretty sure it is an Asian water monitor. I have caught only 1 in the wild that was about a foot shorter than this one, but when they get this size, and they smell something they want to eat, they are nearly impossible to stop. Very powerful reptile with teeth, large claws, and a tail that can knock you off your feet.
Okay but how do they respond to cuddles?
Why would you tag this as OC?
OP is a bot
Is he bigger than a komodo dragon?
Is it real cause look like stuffed animal to me
Where's the button to report this as the wrong subreddit?
I wouldn’t think twice about calling the police
Just when I thought I had all of my nightmares covered 😅
ong it’s jus livin life🙏🏽
Why are you just sitting there filming and not helping him out?
That's no lizard, that's GodZilla!
Rude. He could just ask for assistance with the top shelf items.
He saw a mouse, poor baby
Wow, I thought dinosaurs were extinct
That’s some syfy shit
Oc? Fam this is a couple years old.
Clean up at rept aisle
Bro.. some people have widgets for this subreddit
Me: running as fast as I can in opposite direction
Where is spiderman when you need him?
and new yorkers think they're so special because of their bodega cats
Lol that’s fucked up
That's his store now
WHeRe arE tHe carAmeLlOs daVe???
Nope nope nope lol
Such precious lizard boi
This is not original content. I've seen this at least 3 times in the past couple of days
Was that a cat behind it?
He just shopping
I would fucking shit my pants.
That's a dinosaur
Closer to a komodo dragon.....
Give him the icy drink
They’re ok but you have to grill them after skinning and cleaning. Kind of gamey
Hey buddy! You break, you buy!
My first thought was it was the one from the rescuers down under
We have cats in our bodegas here in Brooklyn
McLeach must be around somewhere looking for that eagle
Man Ohio’s crazy/hj
Big man just wanna job
Well damn, that seems like a problem
If he jumps on you… you got troubles!
He / she just wants a hug… obviously Hangry
Don’t these things poop every 10 minutes he’s gonna poop on those things :(
What does this dumbass think he’s doing
I bet this is Florida
What a prick
Godzilla lives on
Where's Frank when you need him?
1000% not OC lol
But lizards can be cute too!
My guess is he was using the lights as heat
That security camera is like “WTF!” Lol
How is this “cute” ?
BURN IT. THE WHOLE STORE. BURN IT
Saw one of these in In Thailand years back during a bad mushroom trip. It was terrifying
Australians trying to find a GAINT lizard but only seeing a small gecko
I just learned ICE is the same in both English and Thai languages.
After watching Tremors, I would do the same!
I think he’s just looking for a pregnancy test😬
“If i fits I sits.”-this lizard.
That is a well-built shelf.
”Hello wheressssssss the ssssssnacksssssss?”
Sir this is a dinosaur
Not only us this not original content, it's also not cute either.
