Iguana comes in from the cold after being left in lay-by
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.
