Aug. 11 (UPI) -- A Florida man who noticed the toilet in his family's warehouse wasn't flushing well discovered the cause -- an iguana in the drain pipe.

Oscar Tabares said he was using the bathroom last week at his family's warehouse in Medley when he noticed the commode wasn't flushing well and water was leaking out from under the bowl.

Tabares used a plunger to attempt to unclog the toilet, but he was unsuccessful. He said he enlisted the help of family members to remove the toilet so he could look down into the train.

Tabares said he looked into the drain pipe and saw the head of an iguana looking back at him.

A video captured by Tabares shows his uncle using a piece of rope tied to a piece of wood to fish the iguana out of the drain.

Tabares said his uncle used the makeshift leash to walk the iguana out behind the warehouse, where the creature was set free.
