'Swamp Wars': Flesh-Eating Dangerous Lizard Captured In Public Park Restroom (VIDEO)

"Swamp Wars" (Sun., 8 p.m. ET on Animal Planet) shows some intense and shocking footage of dangerous and wild creatures, but the show also serves as a cautionary tale for people who think they can manage exotic animals as pets. It's certainly not as easy as heading down to the local pound for a dog or a cat.

Those are domesticated animals, whereas an exotic animal is a wild animal, no matter where it's found.

That was the case for the Venom One team, when they were tasked with bringing in a dangerous lizard found in a public park restroom. Thank goodness no one was injured by the animal, as the show spotlighted just how dangerous this African Nile monitor lizard can be.

They're a new threat to Florida, and seem to fear nothing and eat everything -- including human flesh. Since people don't know much about them, it makes them even more dangerous, as their claws are razor sharp and they're not afraid to use them.

See amazing new creatures every week on "Swamp Wars," Sundays at 8 p.m. ET on Animal Planet.
