HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - A 3-foot-long iguana was captured Thursday in Waipio Gentry.

State Department of Agriculture inspectors found the lizard on Board of Water Supply property in a tree near Kanoelani Elementary School.

The school contacted the department after they spotted the little guy Tuesday afternoon.

Inspectors went out Wednesday but couldn’t find the reptile until Thursday after getting permission from the Board of Water Supply.

A fully grown adult can reach up to 6 feet long.
