Attanai Thaiyuanwong live streamed video (below) of a six-foot monitor lizard as it tried to get into his family's home in Samutprakarn, Thailand, on June 12.

The giant lizard is seen standing upright while grabbing the door handle with its mouth, notes Australia's Yahoo7 News.

The family is heard screaming when the lizard swings its gigantic tail back and forth.

Thaiyuanwong live streamed the bizarre encounter for his Facebook followers.

A police officer saw a young black couple drive by and pulled them over. What he did next left them stunned:

Coconuts Bangkok translated the conversation between the family members.

"Hia is in our house. It’s f------- huge!" a man shouts.

"They say if you throw a coin at it, it will go away!" a woman adds. "It's like giving the lizard luck and fortune!"

"You should stand next to it, sister," the man fires back. "You're the same size."

"It's cute!" the woman insists.

"Cute? Has it ever tried to reach the mirror and look at itself or what?" the man says.

An unidentified man approaches the creature with a rope, but the lizard swings its mighty tail once again.

Thaiyuanwong told Coconuts Bangkok that a worker at his home was able to remove the lizard and take it to a forest.

"[The lizard] is here all the time," Thaiyuanwong added. "There are even bigger ones!"

"We call it Selena after the celebrity [Selena Gomez] my sister likes, because we don't want to say the word 'hia' in our home," he explained.

Apparently, there is an entire lizard family.

"Aside from Selena, there are many babies, too," Thaiyuanwong told Thailand's Daily News. "We've grown accustomed to them, but we're not that close."

"Humans have invaded the animals’ habitats so now they don't know where to go," he added. "Not having a home is sad enough, and humans still try to get rid of them. Let’s say we can all live together as long as we don’t hurt one another."
