Iguana Attack Sends Woman To Hospital

Why, Florida, of course. Where the hell else?


CAPE CORAL, Fla. - (WBBH/NBC) - A Southwest Florida woman found out the hard way that adopting wild animals is not always a great idea.

Amanda Gray's pet iguana named "Igmo" attacked her not once, but twice.

"She's like my baby. She used to sleep in my bra when she was little," said Gray.

"Igmo" isn't a baby anymore, but rather a four-foot adult reptile with some attitude problems.

Gray said the aggressive behavior has gotten out of control.

"She definitely used to love me, but I feel like right now I'm going through some things and she can sense my weakness and instability, so she's challenging me for alpha," Gray.

Scars from Igmo's sharp nails cover her arms and now her face. The most recent attack sent her to the hospital.


It never surprises me when I read about things like this or when someone owns another wild animal like a snake or monkey that they eventually attack their owners. WIldlife is just that...wild.

"She definitely used to love me"

Reptiles can't love. No requisite neural structures, much like Trump and Moore.

Leave it to Zed to bring up Trump on a thread that has nothing to do with politics.

Barbecue Iguana, It's what's for lunch, just like chicken.

There was an interesting experiment conducted on Grand Cayman a year or two ago with invasive iguanas. Within almost no time, acreage dee ed iguana-free - they were hunted down and killed off - had as many iguana inhabitants as before.
