Giant Invasive Lizard Finally Captured in Florida

Wildlife officials have finally captured a large, invasive Asian water monitor that had been running loose in the Florida Keys for more than a year.

The Asian water monitor lizard measured 5 feet, 2 inches long and weighed 20 pounds, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC).

“Staff, volunteers and partners have been setting traps and searching high and low to remove this nonnative reptile for over a year,” the FWC said Thursday in a Facebook post.
