WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — File it under pizza toppings only offered in Florida.
State inspectors say they found an 80-pound iguana stashed in the freezer at a local pizza joint. Pizza Mambo in West Palm Beach was forced to close for a day last week following the inspection by the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation.
A restaurant employee told the South Florida Sun Sentinel the reptile was gifted to the owner and stored in a separate freezer away from the restaurant’s food. It was immediately trashed after they were informed it was a violation.
Non-native iguanas are multiplying so rapidly that a state wildlife officials encourage people to kill them.
