This Badass Waitress Kicked A Huge Lizard Out Of Her Restaurant

Get ready to meet the most badass waitress you’ll even encounter.


Samia Lila, a 25-year-old French server working on holiday at a New South Wales, Australia vineyard, jumped into action when a really freaking large lizard tried to take over her shift.

When a customer grabbed her hand and pointed at the creature making its way into the restaurant, Lila thought it was a dog. In fact, it was a goanna: A species of large lizards that are most commonly found in Australia. They’re typically not found entering bars full of humans, however.

Lila, whose manager said is terrified of spiders but apparently fears no reptile, knew exactly how to handle their new guest. “I like reptiles, I think he is a really beautiful creature [and] I didn’t want to hurt him,” she said, according to the local news affiliate. “At first I was shocked, but then I just smiled. Afterwards I was a bit shaky.”

She grabbed him by the tail and started dragging him backwards through the restaurant and out the door, swinging to avoid a bite. She’d never seen a goanna before a few days earlier, when she spotted one in the forest surrounding the restaurant.

“Every time he tried to reach me, I just lift him up. He’s quite heavy,” Lila said. “I just figured if I do this, he’s never going to reach my hand, and I was just focussed on his mouth.”

Her boss was as impressed as the diners who filmed her battle with the lizard. “I never knew we had so many in the vineyard. She scans for them [and] can spot a daddy-long-legs at 40 metres, but she had no fear at all of that goanna.” Get this woman a raise.
