New Delhi: A 1.5 m long goanna gave a man fright of his life. 80-year-old Eric Holland, was working in his shed earlier this week when he emerged to find the goanna in his backyard in Thurgoona, near Albury in New South Wales.
Holland, who managed to snap a picture of the goanna told a local newspaper that it was a big surprise for him, as he had lived there for 18 years and had never seen a goanna as big as this one.
“I saw movement as I came out of the shed and I had a look and thought, bloody hell what is this thing? When I recovered from the shock I went inside and got a camera.”
