FOX NEWS – A giant lizard that’s terrorizing a Florida family has no intention of being captured, as it has managed to evade state wildlife officials, trappers and hunting dogs for days.

The reptile — what the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) told Fox News is an Asian water monitor lizard — could weigh 150 pounds, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported.

It was first spotted by Zachary Lieberman a few weeks ago on a horse trail behind his family’s home. He contacted the FWC about the 6-foot lizard, which he wasn’t expecting to see again.

He never expected the reptile to make its way into his backyard. On Sunday, the lizard began scratching at the family’s back door.
