Default Big @$! Lizard

I live in downtown Orlando on a lake. My neighbors just came over to informed me they spotted a 4-5ft lizard in the trees in my backyard this morning. I was wondering what I should do. If I shot it will I be in trouble? I have a 1.5yr old baby grl and am worried that this creature may see her as dessert.

Are there iguana's in Orlando? The only otehr lizard that gets close to taht big is a Monitor and I'm pretty sure they aren't in FL that big.

Iguana's that got to big have been released by the individuals that owned them. They reach 4 and 5 feet so thats probably what it is. Used to watch them sun themselves in the fields when I lived in Panama.

I wouldnt worry bout an iguana. We see them all the time in the keys and know they are not aggressive. They said that it was big and dark so not and iguana. Anyone else have experience with this.

Not sure about 4-5ft, but Savannah Monitors are pretty popular pets (when small) and have no problem growing to 3ft or so someone could of easily released one or one escaped.

When I was a deputy in Orange County Florida we carried snake shot. Give OPD a call, they should be able to find someone to call.

Or call these guys
