Jocelyn Penson, who posted the video to Facebook, said the footage was shot at her son Frank Crowder’s home in Apopka, Fla.

22 September (News) — A central Florida family captured video having an unusual visitor — a large monitor lizard climbing a window.

The video shows the lizard climbing the window in what appears to be an attempt to find its way inside. The reptile eventually lands off the window and onto the floor.

“Looks like Godzilla to me!” penson wrote.

Penson’s family initially said the animal appeared to be a tegu lizard, but Ron Magill, a wildlife expert at Zoo Miami, said the reptile was a water monitor lizard native to sub-Saharan Africa.

“It’s a lizard that can generally be anywhere from 3 to 5 feet tall,” he told WSVN-TV.

Magill said the lizard is likely a former pet that either escaped or was released into the wild by its owner.
