Lizard in Saudi restaurant sold for $8

Leave a comment

A big desert lizard wreaked havoc inside a restaurant in Saudi Arabia when it sneaked into the place before it was auctioned for around $8, a newspaper reported on Saturday.

Customers inside the restaurant in the central province of Ras ran out in panic when the lizard, weighing more than three kg, walked into the place, ‘Al Riyadh’ Arabic language daily said.

The lizard had managed to flee municipality cleaners who seized it at a nearby cemetery and headed for the restaurant, apparently attracted by the smell of food, the paper said.

“Customers fled the restaurant in panic before a Saudi man seized the lizard….an auction was later held for the lizard, which fetched SR30 ($8).”

At 1 mile (1,600 m; 5,280 ft) tall Saudi skyscraper is mindblowing

Saudi Arabia is currently working on a skyscraper that will be twice the size of the current record holder, Dubai’s Burj Khalifa (here’s the view from the top and what happens when lightning strikes that one). At 1 mile (1,600 m; 5,280 ft) tall, the Saudi development has a projected cost of $30bn. A city with a capacity of 80,000 people will be constructed around the tower, extending over an area of 23 million square metres.

Permission to build this beast of a building has been granted and construction work is under way. The first video below was shot at the project’s original announcement when the exact height was yet to be set. The second puts things in perspective a little more.
