KO OLINA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A small blue spotted lizard was found in a second floor guest room of the Ko Olina Beach Club Hotel, Thursday afternoon.

The Hawaiian Humane Society says the animal is illegal in Hawaii.

The lizard will be passed over to the Department of Agriculture on Friday to determine what type of lizard it is and what should be done with it.

This comes about a week after a foot-long bearded dragon was captured in Waianae, also an illegal animal.

If you find an illegal animal, you can give it to the Hawaiian Humane Society through their amnesty drop off site with no questions asked.

For more information or to report an illegal animal, call the state's pest hotline at 643-7378.
