Singapore – Video footage of a man using his bare hands to move a huge monitor lizard from the middle of the road and onto the pavement is making its rounds online.

Shared via All Singapore Stuff’s Facebook group, the short clip showed a man grabbing the tail of the lizard as he waited for some bystanders stop the flow of vehicles.

Once there was an opportunity to pass, the man gently lifted the neck of the large lizard and carried it onto the sidewalk; just another day for Steve Irwin’s brother-at-heart.

Taken by Reena Syai Safiy Sufi, the video was uploaded with the following caption: “This man brave siol! Saving a monitor lizard from being a roadkill, and a motorist from an unwanted accident.”

The video appeared to have been taken at Sengkang East Avenue next to Austville Residences.

An alarming detail to note is how limp the lizard looked while it was being carried, leading to some netizens to point out that it was already dead. However, a quick search online showed that monitor lizards, often regarded as the most intelligent of all lizards, tend to conserve their energy by staying vefy still during the dry season when food is scarce.

Thankfully, the man moved it away from the middle of the road so that it could continue laying still without the possibility of an accident occurring.

Hopefully, it was afterwards able to make its way to the Serangoon River close by.
