‘I walked in my bathroom and found Godzilla in my toilet’: Angry IGUANA invades Florida man’s home

A Florida man got the nasty surprise of biting into the toilet when he came face to face with an angry iguana.

John Riddle, 58, was about to use the bathroom at his Hollywood home when he noticed it was already occupied by a giant reptile sitting on the toilet.

The scaly intruder looked just as surprised as Riddle when he started hissing angrily at him, turning towards his camera for a threatening photo.

“I walked in my bathroom and found Godzilla in my toilet,” said Riddle.

“He didn’t look happy at all and started splashing and hissing at me.”

Before Riddle could finally do what he did when he came to the bathroom, he took the net he had used to clean his pool and got rid of the unwanted visitor.

“I don’t think I’ll be leaving the door open for those dogs again,” he added.

The giant lizard is not native to Florida, and the animal has been blamed in recent years for causing damage to buildings and power outages.

The reptiles are native to Central America and several eastern Caribbean islands, and they first arrived in Florida in the 1960s.

Since then, their population has continued to increase. Iguanas are known to get into sewer systems and are strong swimmers, so it’s not uncommon for them to occasionally end up in someone’s toilet.

Wildlife experts warn iguanas can transmit salmonella to pets and cause erosion near lakes and canals, and as temperatures drop, the National Weather Service in Miami is known to issue a falling iguana warning.

When it gets cold, below 40 degrees, the creatures go into a kind of suspended animation and fall to the ground. They usually wake up under the warm sun.

Last January, the crippled creature fell from a tree after the Sunshine State experienced temperatures of 37 degrees – its coldest weather in 12 years.

The unusually cold weather was fueled by the nor’easter farther up the coast, forcing Florida residents to rally against near-freezing temperatures.
