    I dont recall where i was but it was low light and narrow. I was walking with someone i think my wife. She was ahead and to my right was a hole and this Komodo dragon came out started crawling on the walls I’m headed towards me but never came face-to-face that was it! And nothing is close to normal at this moment in time so strange.

  2. Saw multiple really small like 2-3 inches baby reptiles all green in colors but baby Crocs n alligators variety. They were all camouflaged on my long scarf and I started shaking the scarf to get rid of them and most of them did jump off and scatter away! Not sure what that means though

  3. it had crawled out of a crack in the wall then starting to eat something . i approach it and it started to grow bigger and bigger

  4. I dreamt of seeing four iguanasin my living room. the last one was always staring at me. Sometime later, that Iguana went into a fight with another iguana, I got scared and left the room. Later I found out that the iguanas changed into jelly like green octopuses

    • I saw a bunch of iguanas sleeping alongside me on a bed and in spite of me trting to take them away , they kept coming back. Some were around me, some were inside my clothes, and they kept coming back out of nowhere… they were just sleeping with me but i was scared.

  5. I had a dream that I was sleeping and suddenly there was a feeling that something is crawling on my chest and than I woke and kick the lizard with my hands and through it to wall and than I saw that lizard was gazing and teeth of the lizard was like human and than I woke up and dream ended.. could you pls tell me what this means… as I am afraid of it now..
