Large monitor lizard lurking near school - Tampa Bays Local News
lovely. Just lovely.
"It is not known where the lizard came from.
'We haven't had anyone report one missing,' Seyferth said. 'We don't know where he came from.'"
What do you want to bet that someone didn't want their big lizard anymore and just let it go?
Edit: DUH, that's what you were saying with the title, which I promptly ignored after reading the article.
I like how the officers in the photo basically look terrified of the monitor. Maybe THAT'S how we can avoid tickets.
On another note. This story was linked to that one: Central Florida Woman Says She Found Frog Head In Fast-Food Salad - Orlando News Story - WKMG Orlando
Heh. Where's the other half of the frog?!
i bet no one is going to steal THAT patrol car.
I'm sure it would survive in the wild in Florida, until it came face to face with a large gator.
Too bad they didn't make it to the Exotic Animal Amnesty Day down there - I read about it on somebody's post here, and saw a snippet about it on the Sunday Morning Show. They had a big turn out, it seems - though I hope the police took that big guy to them, too!
The owner may be irresponsible but he seems to know what he was doing until it got out. looks like a blackthroat.
Love the looks on the officers faces....
theres alot of weird random animals in FL i saw a mangrove monitor when i went biking with my bf in ocala..we even have these weird green parrots! they eat the seeds in the palm tree's..and the python numbers in the everglades are really high and they are going north in north florida,georgia,carolina >.< the strey cat population might goo down >.<
"Where's the other half of the frog?"
Hopefully not in her belly
speaking of florida, when i was there, on the news was a 4-6 foot iguana that had gotten out of someone's yard. No one wanted to go near it :chuckles:
