DAVIE, Florida -- A monster lizard is terrifying a neighborhood in Florida.

Trappers, hunting dogs and state wildlife officers have been called in to try and catch the enormous alligator-sized lizard.

The Asian monitor is about 6-feet long and is roaming an area around the city of Davie.

The lizard is not a native to Florida.

Trappers have been out searching for it, but so far, they have nothing.

Some neighbors believe that the lizard may actually be someone's pet that lives nearby.
