A Florida woman was surprised to find an unexpected stranger inside of her toilet. 

Michelle Bennett said she was startled to find an iguana in her toilet as she lifted the lid!

A trapper was called to the Hollywood home who identified the creature as a Mexican spiny-tailed iguana. They come in through vents in the roof. 

The trapper says he gets several calls like this every month.

"They get curious when they're up there. They see a vent, they fall in. There's no way for them to come out so they just follow it until it ends up in the toilet."
