Iguana found behind NJ bank

An elusive, two-foot long, green iguana has been captured in Rochelle Park, New Jersey.

The lizard was discovered behind the Valley National Bank on Rochelle Ave. Monday afternoon.

Rochelle Park Police had reportedly received various reports of sightings of the lizard over the past several weeks.

On Monday, Sgt. Ed Kukalski wrangled the reptile with the help of another police officer who helped distract it.

Iguanas are not native to the United States and any found in the U.S. are likely pets imported from Mexico, Central America or the Caribbean.

The iguana, named 'Iggy' by police, was taken to  Bergen County Animal Control.

Soon after, photos of the lizard were posted to Facebook.

The owners have reportedly come forward to claim their missing pet.
