Iguana caught in bicycle sends man to hospital


One unlucky iguana managed to get stuck between a bicycle’s front tire and front wheel fork after darting out in front of the bike rider’s path in Florida Keys.

The 62-year-old man said he was pedaling down a bicycle path when the reptile shot out from a grassy area and became lodged in his front tire, causing it to lock up. The man was thrown over the handlebars and landed roughly on the asphalt.

Pictures of the incident were posted on the sheriff’s department’s Facebook page that showed the iguana mangled in the bike’s tire.
