Abhishek Gupta, a Twitter user on July 12 posted a video in reply to photo of a weird and dangerous looking creature that took NETizens by shock.
The video shows a Gigantic Lizard loitering near his house in Lucknow. To find the truth of the video, we tried finding if there is a similar creature found in Lucknow.
On little research, we came across this information.
Locally known as VISH – KHOPARA, the creature shown in the above video is Bengal monitor or common Indian monitor. It is a monitor lizard found widely distributed over the Indian Subcontinent, as well as in parts of South-east Asia and West Asia. The large lizard is mainly terrestrial and the size can range from 61 cm to 175 cm.
