The new-fallen snow may be the talk of the town today, but there's more going on in Vienna than meets the eye. Like, did you know a pet Iguana in Vienna is looking for a new home?

"Waffles" is her name. She's at least 7 years old. She eats a vegetarian diet of mostly lettuce, kale and fruit. Here's more from the craigslist ad published by her current owners:

The iguana "has a cage I have had for several years, you may need to purchase a new habitat for her. To good home only. I have had her for about 7 years and I got her as a baby, my wife is pregnant so we are looking to find my iguana a new good home."
There is a re-homing fee of $150 for the iguana, which includes a cage, cat post, UV and basking light and a hammock.

If you think Waffles might be the pet for you, just click on the craigslist link in this story to respond to the owner's ad.

Re-homing fee? Is he truly interested in ensuring that his pet iguana has a good home? Or is this about the money? I know that there are good people out there who would consider taking in this iguana, but maybe they don't have $150 right now. And I don't get it. Why does he have to get rid of the iguana just because they're having a baby? This was HIS baby 7 years ago. This just doesn't add up, and I regret reposting it on Facebook now.
