Locals in Ayutthaya will be playing the lottery big time today after a huge “tua ngern tua thong” (water monitor) took up residence, albeit briefly in an Ayutthaya grannie’s home.
Ayutthaya Ruam Jai foundation staff were called to the house in Phai Ling district by owner Pranorm Ditthareuangdech, 64, after she heard dogs barking and saw the massive creature.
It didn’t take the foundation staff long to catch the monster and take the obligatory pictures.
Pranorm said enthusiastically: “I have never seen one this big before – it was not afraid of people at all. I am absolutely convinced that it will bring luck”.
The appearance of the creature is viewed by many Thais as auspicious. The animal’s pleasant name should be used for fortune purposes though many Thais use its common name as a vulgar swearword.
The lottery will be drawn today so here are the all important numbers.
The house is number 53.
The car parked there is 9329.
And don’t forget that Pranorm is 64.
