This is the amusing moment a quick monitor lizard was spotted running along a mountain road in southern Thailand.

Footage shows the reptile scampering on the concrete ground before disappearing behind the forest in Chumphon province on April 22.

Rider Siriya Ohm said the lizard appeared to be in a hurry and tried to climb a road barrier but failed.

He said: ‘It was so fast. It was trying to climb over the barrier but failed. It was so happy when it reached an opening to the forest.’
