Monitor lizards hug and twirl in a bizarre mating ritual


Footage shows two monitor lizards hugging and twirling their bodies against each other in a bizarre mating ritual in Nakhon Pathom, Thailand on September 25

Passerby Suphon Washiraanant was riding his bicycle when he saw two reptiles hugging each other while floating in the park’s water.

He said: ‘At first I thought they were fighting, but then after watching them for a few minutes, they seemed to be enjoying the warm water in the pond.’
