Police appeal over 5ft lizard missing in Swansea
POLICE are appealing for help in finding a missing 5ft lizard on the loose in Swansea.
The runaway reptile went walkabout from a garden in the Brynmill area of the city yesterday afternoon.
Officers say the lizard is not considered dangerous but that its owner is concerned for its welfare, and they are appealing for anybody with information on its whereabouts to contact them.
A South Wales Police spokesman said: “Police in Swansea are appealing to the public for any sightings of a pet lizard which has gone missing from a rear garden of a house on King Edwards Road, Swansea.
“The lizard, which is approximately five feet long from head to tail, was let out for exercise at around 4.30pm yesterday and it is believed that it may have escaped from the garden.”
Police have issued a photograph and a description of the missing creature — it described as being around 5ft long, with black and white scales, with short legs and is “a bit puffy” around the neck.
