Toilet-clogging iguana is far from a pipe dream

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.) — A large lizard drew quite a few stares in Florida – not for its size, but its location.Oscar Tabares was trying to unclog a toilet at his family’s warehouse last Wednesday. When a plunger couldn’t do the job he called on family to help him remove the toilet.Tabares told ABC affiliate WPLG-TV an iguana was looking back at him in the toilet’s drain pipe, and he has the video to prove it.Footage provided to WPLG-TV shows Tabares’ uncle playing reptile wrangler and removing the lizard with a piece of rope.The Sunshine State is no stranger to surprise guests in its plumbing. In May, a woman in Miami called 911 after finding an iguana in her toilet.Lt. Felipe Lay of Miami-Dade Fire Rescue told WPLG-TV earlier this year that iguanas are “excellent swimmers and they can hold their breath for an extended period of time.”As for the fate of this most recent commode-loving curiosity, Tabares said his uncle safely released the iguana outside.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.
