The Reason Why This Iguana Is Hitching A Ride On A Cooler Will Warm Your Heart

Imagine being stranded in the ocean, miles away from shore.

For me, the thought alone is terrifying — a feeling this iguana was probably experiencing as it kept on moving its exhausted legs. The animal had somehow ended up four miles from shore in Key West, Florida. There’s no telling how much longer it would have held on before drowning if its rescuer hadn’t shown up.

The iguana was seriously lucky that day. A boater just happened to travel to the exact spot where it was struggling to stay afloat.

While hilariously conversing with the relieved lizard, the man drove it back to shore as it enjoyed a much-needed rest on his cooler.
