If COVID-19 does not scare you enough, this monitor lizard spotted in Delhi will surely do

Yes, these are Comodo Dragons, they live freely near water resources in many Asian countries, they are non poisonous and shy lizards, they hardly encounter with human, but small animals they swallow, they may harm you by a bite (their mouth contains bacteria’s) if you fight them!— Srinivasan Sriram 🇮🇳 (@SSRPillai) 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
