In this Oscar-winning movie directed by Ang Lee, Pi Patel's family have a zoo in Pondicherry, India, but the city no longer will support it so they pack up all the animals in crates and put them on a boat to Canada. The boat sinks, and Pi and a tiger become adrift on the ocean. During the opening credits we see the zoo and many of its animals. On the zoo's grounds we see a wild monitor lizard with the camera placed at ground-level. The lizard runs up to the camera, stops, turns around, then runs away just as two people come walking through its path. This actually is a very impressive shot, since getting the lizard to run up, stop at its mark, then turn around could not have been easy.
