'Godzilla-like creature' nabbed in Calif. town

RIVERSIDE, Calif. — The 5-foot Monitor lizard wandering around a condo complex in the city of Riverside had residents freaking out and reporting a Godzilla-like creature in their neighborhood. Black-throated Monitor lizards are carnivorous, legal to own in California and native to the African grasslands and parts of Asia. Juveniles go for about $100 in pet stores, but they grow. The animal was captured and taken to Riverside County Animal Services. Photo: Riverside County Department of Animal Services Source
