The Kyiv zoo-rescuers found the one-meter long iguana at the kitchen-garden of the citizen of Krushynka village, Kyiv region. A woman called the rescue group and reported that 'the dinosaur walks at my kitchen-garden for a few weeks and eats the marrows'. The Kyiv Animal Rescue Group reported this at Facebook.
'Despite the weird claim, the woman described the appearance and the size of the dinosaur in details. The group went to Krushynka village and found out large iguana on bushes near the house. The iguana seemed to escape from someone a long time ago because despite the large size it did not put up a fight and was extremely exhausted and dehydrated', the message reported.
The iguana was hospitalized at the vet clinics of the Kyiv Zoo where it will be cured by the herpetologists.
The volunteers of the Kyiv Animal Rescue Group saved 966 animals in 2016.
