Box containing live reptiles delivered to wrong address

A new study by business thread recently discovered that 90% of people are hyper-vigilant about tracking their online purchases. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case for someone who ordered a shipment of live reptiles that was mistakenly delivered to the wrong address in August.

An anonymous person who lives just north of New York in the small village of Port Chester, New York, was surprised when a mysterious package containing live reptiles arrived at her doorstep.

The package startled the resident, who immediately called Port Chester Police Department in New York. When officers arrived, they discovered the package was filled with “lizards and iguanas”.

“After catching all the animals, we secured them until a local animal sanctuary could collect them for safekeeping,” the Port Chester Police Department revealed in a post shared on Facebook.

The department is now asking for help from the community to ensure these creatures reach their rightful owner safely.

“If you have lost your lizards and iguanas, we have them at PD,” the PCPD continued in its social media post, including a photo of the live lizards in a bucket. “Every day is different here on PC!”

It is unclear if the reptiles were sent as a prank or if the sender simply included the wrong address. If not sent as part of a prank, the intended recipient of the package remains a mystery.
