Well now here's something that you don't see every day here in Maine.

Imagine the wonderment of these two officers from the South Berwick police department when discovered this fairly large lizard sunning itself in a resident's backyard garden.  Whooooaaa!

Now lizards like these are normally running around wild quite a bit southerly of South Berwick, Maine, so it was a little bit of a shocker when everyone involved came across this reptile with the darting tongue.

The cops did enjoy taking a picture with it though, as you can tell by the two smiling faces....we can't tell if the lizard is smiling though.  The PD even posted an accompanying photo of King Kong on Facebook, just to have a little more fun with it.

By the way, the owner still hasn't been found.  Hey, anyone hungry for a few flies?
