Four-foot long monitor lizard rescued
The NGO said it immediately rushed two trained rescuers to the spot.
Monitor lizards are mostly non-offensive but can bite or even use their strong claws in retaliation if threatened or provoked. So, the team had to be cautious while carrying out the rescue operation as they wanted to avoid startling it, said an NGO official.
As a result of continuous deforestation and expansion of human habitation these largely misunderstood reptiles are often forced to wander out of their natural habitats in search of food and shelter.
