From Tech Times: Nile monitor lizards are running rampant in Florida, hunting and eating house cats.

They can vary in color from brown to dark olive and pale yellow varieties, though each is distinguished by light yellow band markings near the head and tail.

The center of the lizard invasion is Palm Beach County, where the creatures often congregate in and near canals and other bodies of water. They mate in early spring.
