Nature is a cruel beast. If you aren’t doing the eating, you’re the one being eaten.
Wish someone had told this lizard that, though.
Another one doing the eating that night was Melanie Jade Ottaway, who sat down to eat dinner when she noticed this gigantic huntsman spider about to chow down on a gecko. The spider sat patiently on a glass door with the lizard hanging out of its mouth. Nature is terrifying.
She told The Daily Mail, “'We just sat down to have dinner at the dining table and noticed something massive on the glass sliding door. I got up to have a closer look and there it was, a huge huntsman with a gorgeous little gecko in. It was too late to save him, so we let nature take its path.”
Nature, your cruel ways are a mystery to us all. We march on in fear.
Good Morning America wanted to engage their Twitter users by asking them about some of their favorite memes. Memes like tea lizard. You know, the one with Kermit drinking tea. Kermit. KERMIT THE FROG. As you might imagine, the internet's outrage was both glorious and swift.
This nearly five foot long lizard called a goanna was caught climbing up a wall in Australa. Eric Holland is the man who spotted it and took a picture while he was working outside. It's rare to see this kind of lizard hanging out among people. Experts said that it could get even bigger. Apparently this is what Australia has to offer in the way of adorable, surprise house guests.
If you've never seen a goanna before, you may recognize it as the creepy egg-eating evil sidekick the Rescuers Down Under.
