Evening Express (City Final) - - Scotland Today -

A GI­ANT iguana mea­sur­ing more than 5ft is be­ing cared for by an­i­mal wel­fare ex­perts af­ter be­ing found in a lay-by.

The Scot­tish SPCA was called af­ter a man dis­cov­ered the rep­tile next to the A702 in the Bor­ders.

The crea­ture was cold and calm so the man picked him up and put him in a box he had in his ve­hi­cle. The iguana is now be­ing cared for at the Scot­tish SPCA’S cen­tre in La­nark­shire where staff have named him Iggy.

An­i­mal Res­cue Of­fi­cer Dawn-vale Low­don said: “De­spite hav­ing a few bumps, he was al­right once he had been warmed up.

“If no one comes for­ward we’ll keep him in our care un­til we can find him a suit­able for­ever home.”

GI­ANT: Iggy the iguana is 5ft in length.
