But it makes no mention of a giant lizard...

The winery posted this dramatic video of local hero and waitress Samira dragging the Goanna back from whence it came.

According to ABC News, a patron alerted French waitress Samia Lila of the intruder, which she at first thought was a dog.

She said: "I like reptiles, I think he is a really beautiful creature [and] I didn't want to hurt him."
