Fingers and monitors don't mix

We caught another monitor lizard the other day. I jokingly warned the Filipinos that they couldn't eat this one. It was about 3 feet long and very fast, with razor sharp claws and alligator strentgh jaws. We had to pry a screw driver in it's mouth, and even then we just barely got the glove back. I had to let it go twice, as the first time it turned 180 degrees and hi-tailed it into the hangar, running right between the pilots legs as he jumped in the air. I caught it again and this time held it on a tree till it got the idea to cling onto the tree itself as I let go.


  1. Dude, did you lose your finger? YIKES!

  2. Well, according to Photoshop I did:-)
