There are certain things on the internet that leave people amazed or shocked. And recently, a picture of a monitor dragon roaming around here and there at a house in Delhi has caught everyone's attention. It was IPS officer HGS Dhaliwal who shared the photo of the micro-blogging website and ever since the discussions around the same have been going on. He wrote alongside, "Spotted at someone’s home in Delhi!!" The photo shows a huge reptile-like creature peeping from behind the wall. Surprisingly, as soon as the picture was posted it got enormous reactions and over 1000 likes. Looking at the discussions going online, it came to light that it was Komodo Dragons who live freely near water resources in many Asian countries. Generally called shy lizards, they hardly encounter with a human, but swallow small animals, they may harm you by a bite (their mouth contains bacteria) if you fight them. This information was shared by a Twitter user and IndiaTV does not claim whether it is true or not.

Monitor Lizard, called Gosap in Bengali. They are very shy reptiles, please don't vilify them.— Bhadrolok (@rwbhadrolok) July 9, 2020
No, monitor lizards are not poisonous. In fact its an endangered species under wildlife protection act.— Avijit Saxena (@avijitsaxena87) July 9, 2020
It's so strange that these Monitor Lizards are seen in residential areas now. Few days back, one came in our sector too in Faridabad and officials had to be called to nab it. I guess it's poisonous too— Animesh Vadehra (@AnimeshVadehra) July 9, 2020
