Locals then asked permission of the animal - a kind of Thai tradition - and covered parts of it in powder to try and discern numbers for the next draw in the lottery

At least once a week I see them next to the canal by the house, followed by a big splash back to the water..

It all depends, if it is in your garden and your dog might be its lunch.

The appearance of such creatures in houses is seen as auspicious and an omen for lottery wins, notes ASEAN NOW.

That seems to get written in every story that involves animals

Covering a amphibian in powder seems rather like animal cruelty, It's their tails you have to watch they use them like a whip.

The ones near us run away from our two Shih Tzus, albeit that may not remain their reaction.  As the things can climb vertical walls, its impossible to keep them out.
