BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. – The state of Florida is hoping that a new chipping plan will help them cut back on invasive species.

John Paeno of Bonita Springs has a pet green iguana that he found when he was a baby.
“I reached out an a grabbed it, and brought it, up and said it’s a little baby iguana!” Paeno said.
