May 31 (UPI) -- A family in Hawaii managed to capture an illegal bearded dragon lizard they found inside their home on Monday.
The Hawaii Department of Agriculture said the Waianae family found the lizard, measuring 16 inches from its snout to its tail, in their yard.
The family contained the bearded dragon and called the Department of Agriculture which sent the lizard to be quarantined at the HDOA's Plant Quarantine Branch.
Another bearded dragon was found just blocks away from the family's home in 2016 and a Kailua found one under his home in 2014.
Hawaiian residents found keeping bearded dragons as pets are subjects to fines of up to $20,000 and as many as three years in jail.
