Lizard bit off more than he can chew with this giant centipede

This little lizard definitely bit off more than he could chew – after it grabbed hold of a giant centipede.

The blue and orange tokay gecko caught the eight-inch long insect by its tail on deserted wall in Chonburi.

Wuttipong Jansamut, 40, noticed the unusual scene after finishing work at a nearby factory.

He said the reptile was struggling with the insect but even after a two-minute long stalemate it would not release the insect.

Wuttipong said: ”I did not want to touch them. I stayed back. I’ve never seen a millipede this big, and definitely not with a gecko.

”I needed to get home so I didn’t stop to find out how it ended. I’m not sure who won the battle. That is a mystery.”

The tokay gecko is nocturnal but can appear in the early evening. It is native to Asia and feeds on insects and small vertebrates.

Sightings of geckos are common in Thailand. If you have seen a gecko, snake or anything else unusual on your phone Submit your videos to PattayaOne to have them featured online.
