"He advised residents to not try to capture the lizards themselves. "

What kind of pathetic society do we live in where we are supposed to be scared of 30 pound lizards?

The one thing you should never do
Is mess with an angry tegu
Call the FWC
For the scores you might see-
And get back to enjoying fondue.

Depends on how vicious said lizards are. They do have sharp claws and teeth, apparently.

Is Florida collectively brain dead? They are busy battling exotics and licensing new types of critters as they do it. "Well, this one has the potential to over run the ecosystem with catastrophic results, let's bring it in."
I guess they have to have something to feed the pythons after they wipe out the native species.

it's cool looking i would keep it

buy a 30 dollar kiddie pool  and throw it a few feeder mice a week, you have cool pet that doesn't need to be walked and it will keep away bugs snakes and other vermin, pretty much win.

My wife and I traveled to Chichen Itza... Tour guide was a cool Mayan dude. Suddenly, a 3 foot Iguana went zipping up a tree in the middle of the park. Several tourists in the group were freaked out, but the little tour guide just smiled and said that is a "Mexican Chicken".

I went to school in Miami-Dade county as a kid.  The science teacher had a huuuge iguana he kept in a vivarium. One year after a hurricane took out a fairly large chunk of the school, it escaped.  They looked for it, but no dice - until it reappeared about 3 weeks later, falling out of a duct during class.  I still remember how the teacher screamed......

\That thing was farking huge, even for an iguana

Tegu are pretty vicious and can slice you up very quickly. So catching one is a hold my beer moment. Now if you just want to kill it that shouldn't be hard.

A lizard that side with a properly aimed tail whack at the base of the neck could possibly kill. I've been whacked in the leg by a nile monitor tail and it's not very enjoyable. They do hiss and look real mean and carry bacteria in their mouths similar to a komodo dragon that can infect and cause other damage. Best to leave it to people that know the dangers handle it. The city's would open themselves to liability if they encouraged people to capture them and they were hurt, especially when they already have an active animal control department.

The larger species of tegus are like 5 or 6 feet long. Its not like a little lizzard.

East Avenue and15th Street.

There are some heavily wooded water run off areas about a quarter mile from there both to the east and the west. The land is swampy and not fit to build on. With 33 of them, there is a pretty fair chance that a m/f pair of them made it to those woods and will produce some lizards. The only predators to them would be humans. The overworked and understaffed animal control people ain't going into those woods after them, but the redneck boys from the trailer parks might if the critters start eating their marijuana plants.

He advised residents to not try to capture the lizards themselves.

... as he needs to justify his job.

Maybe it was some enterprising film school kids, attempting to make a low-budget Spring Break horror movie.

"Hey, Man! We got the beach shot with the babes set up!  Bring those lizards down here!"

"What?"

"Dude?  Where's my Lizards?"

The tegus that are used to being handled might not be too hard to capture, but the next generation born in the wold won't:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lqxqVb7b8Q

FTFA: Because releasing nonnative species is harmful to native wildlife, Sommers encourages anyone who has an exotic pet they no longer want to contact the FWC or participate in Exotic Pet Amnesty Days, where owners can submit their unwanted pet for adoption with no penalty.

Adoption? Huh. I'm thinking that these exotic pets will wind up for sale at the Pet Bazaar in Orlando.

Agreed.  Why would they even allow people to own them?  Create a 90 day amnesty program and if you're caught with one after than a minimum $1,000 fine.

I have held ones that large.  If they are used to being handled it won't be too tough.   Otherwise, wait until it gets dark and a little colder.   Makes all of those things a little easier to catch.
