Iguana Recovered From Clogged Toilet | Roto-Rooter


A South Florida woman gets up close and
personal with this restroom reptile. It all started when a clogged
toilet, and it left her flushed with fright.
Shelby Danielsen has the story you don’t hear every day. It’s not rare to see them in a
Poinsettia Heights neighborhood. You’ll catch them sunbathing on this man-made lake and at times, they’ll be
swimming. “We do have a lot of iguanas on the lake that we live on.” Marian
Lindquist doesn’t mind the scaly critters, but you may want to ask her
daughter, Lily, the same question. Yesterday after
using the bathroom, it would not flush right. “I tried to
flush it again and nothing would happen.” “I got the
plunger, I tried to plunge it, it wouldn’t plunge.” So the plumber came, Alisa Scott of
Roto-Rooter, a plumber for 12 years. “I’ve never seen anything like this
before. That’s first time I pulled something like that out of a toilet.” Here she is working that toilet, using
her tools to snag on to whatever was blocking things. “To my surprise, I pulled out that large
iguana. So at first I thought it was a toy and
then it started moving around.” “I didn’t really want to go look at it because I didn’t want to see an iguana in the toilet that I had just tried to use.” We asked how this happens. “It probably came down the 4-inch, the
main roof vent.” And once it was stuck, the critter came out through the toilet because
the toilet has the biggest opening, not what 17-year-old Lily or really,
anyone, wants to hear. “I don’t want to be there when an iguana flies out of the toilet or an iguana bites me when I’m
trying to go to the bathroom.” Well to help prevent an encore appearance
by a scaly visitor, Lindquist got on top of her roof and covered
any openings an animal may use to enter the residence.

    Are you serious?
    Poor thing.
    Its sad that people may think "It's just a reptile, so who cares?" Well i care. Animals are animals, no matter how different they are or look. I am even proud to be the first to comment this.
