The men were arrested for illegally transporting wild species and are the order of the Prosecutor of Liberia. They were identified with the surname Ponce Borges Diaz Cordoba, Centeno Canales, Castillo and Lopez Martinez Elizondo.

“They all gave different versions but it is believed the iguana was to eat, as they were also carrying fishing lines,” said Melissa Espinoza Rodriguez, spokeswoman for ACG.

The iguana was released and placed back in its habitat.
