Smartphone footage of a giant monitor lizard looking in the fridges and climbing up shelves at a 7-Eleven store in Nakhon Pathom province is the most viewed video of the day in Thailand.
The 6ft long reptile emerged from a nearby canal and ran into the convenience store sparking panic among staff and customers.
As the lizard climbed onto shelves and knocking cartons of milk to the ground a shop assistant called the police who soon arrived with reptile handlers shortly after lunchtime on Tuesday.
The rescue team dragged the lizard out of the store before ushering it away into nearby undergrowth.
Jejene Narumpa who filmed and shared the video on her Facebook page believed the creature was hot and hungry and only came in to cool off.

Welcome To Thailand And ‘F*%k You’
A video of a foul-mouthed tuk tuk driver firing expletives at a tourist and his girlfriend over a disagreement about the fare has gone viral.
Mr “F*%k You” is not who the Tourism Authority Of Thailand had in mind when thinking about a new poster boy for future advertising campaigns to attract visitors back to the country but he stepped up uninvited to put Bangkok back on the global map with his outrageous outburst.
Despite his threatening and abusive behaviour, not much of a punishment will be handed down to Mr Tuk Tuk if the recent incident involving a couple from Singapore who were threatened with a knife by a taxi driver at the airport is anything to go by.
The driver, who was caught on camera, was fined only 3,000 baht and suspended for just 90 days.
