Last week, in St Albans, England, a Good Samaritan driving through a parking lot noticed a glass tank sitting on a patch of grass near the exit. The tank was so filthy — and a live bearded dragon was still inside.
The RSPCA responded right away to help the reptile, who had been abandoned with no food or water. It wasn’t clear how long he had been there, but luckily he was still healthy.
Nicola White, an exotics officer with the RSPCA, said that abandonments like this one happen all the time — especially to reptiles.
