LISA HUGHES: A resourceful, adventurous lizard that hitched a ride from Florida to Massachusetts is looking for a new home.

DAVID WADE: The Animal Rescue League of Brewster says a person found this lizard in their car after driving home from Florida. They believe that the lizard got inside before they left. The brown anole lizard, I think that's how it's pronounced, is a non-native species to Massachusetts. The lizard was taken to a reptile rescue organization in Connecticut. And they're going to find it a proper home. Lisa, you are like a lizard expert. I know this.

LISA HUGHES: I love that little lizard. But I'm not allowed to have him.

DAVID WADE: Why?

LISA HUGHES: Sadly.

DAVID WADE: Long story.

LISA HUGHES: The Edict has come down.

DAVID WADE: OK.

LISA HUGHES: No lizard.
