The London Humane Society has 14 new residents who won’t be rooming too close to their puppies and kittens.

Lizards, dragons and snakes were seized from a London home. These South American and African exotics include two uromastyx lizards, two savannah monitors, three ball pythons, two bearded dragons, two tegas and exotic fish. The tegas are lizards classified as an invasive species in South Florida.

Judy Foster, executive director with the London Humane Society, says these animals require plenty of heat, special care and socialization, as well as space to burrow and bask. They will only be with the society for a short time before being transferred to a sanctuary.
