Iguana in Florida, toilet bowl, prompts 911 call

What has a South Florida woman to do as she lifted the lid on her toilet and found an iguana?

She closed it back and called 911.

Lt Scott Mullin of Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Venom One unit tells the Miami Herald it is the first time that he is an iguana in a toilet.

Mullin says when the call came on Tuesday night, he asked the sender to make sure it was an iguana and not a snake.


He says the woman, her daughter and grandchildren were waiting when he arrived at their home in West Kendall, south of Miami. Mullin says the lizard most likely came by the pipes.

Mullin used gloves to lift the iguana from the bowl, put it in a box, and drove to a wildlife rescue center.
