NEW YORK, July 24 (UPI) -- A lizard and a cheating boyfriend made the list of the strangest things members of a U.S. online travel community have ever found in hotel rooms.
A member of VirtualTourist.com identified as "DAO" said he discovered, and got rid of, a lizard.
"Finally caught him with a metal bin from under a desk, scooped him in and threw him onto … my balcony," DAO reported. "He stayed there for a few minutes and casually wondered off towards another room's balcony."
Perhaps also in the reptilian category, a member whose anonymity is protected by the Web site reported: "I found one of my ex-boyfriends in a hotel room once -- with another woman."
One member reported a sign on a hotel room door that read, "In the event of volcanic eruption the alarm will sound and please muster on the lawn in front of the hotel."
