Iguana seen on the Qawra sea front

Those who went for a quiet swim at Qawra may have been surprised by seeing an unusual creature which also seemed to be enjoying the environment.

It seems that somebody’s iguana may have escaped and ended up along the Qawra beach in the area where the boathouses are.

On social media some commented on the iguana’s beauty but others said they wouldn’t want to face the reptile on a face-to-face basis.

The iguana is an exotic creature and is not part of the Maltese fauna and if not caught will be classified as a creature invading Malta’s environment.

Whoever sees or catches the iguana should contact the National Aquarium at Qawra as they are prepared to look after the creature until the owner claims it.
