THE Scottish SPCA is appealing for information after two ill frilled-neck lizards were found abandoned on a street in Edinburgh.

A member of the public discovered the lizards at the back door of their flat on Stenhouse Drive on Thursday 16 November.

Alongside the two reptiles, someone had left a note saying: ‘Please call the SSPCA and get us help. We are frilled lizards and need to see a vet asap.’

Animal Rescue Officer Darren Malcolm said: “Both lizards were extremely cold and dehydrated when they were found, they wouldn’t have survived much longer out in this cold weather.

“Frilled-neck lizards are exotic animals that require specialist husbandry, including heat. They were also at risk of being attacked by another animal.”

Note (Scottish SPCA)

“Both are currently receiving veterinary treatment and are being cared for at our rescue and rehoming centre in Edinburgh.

“We are asking anyone anyone with any information to contact our animal helpline as soon as possible.”

Abandoning an animal is an offence under the Animal Health and Welfare (Scotland) Act 2006 and anyone found guilty of doing so can expect to be banned from keeping animals for a fixed period or life.

Anyone with information is being urged to contact the Scottish SPCA Animal Helpline on 03000 999 999
