A bearded dragon has been rescued after it was found dumped in a bin.
The lizard was spotted by a member of staff at student accommodation in Edinburgh’s Hillside Crescent on 6 July.
A number of international students recently moved out and the Scottish SPCA believe the reptile belonged to one of them.
Despite being abandoned in the communal bin, the six-month-old bearded dragon was said to have been in a good condition and clearly had been “cared for up to this point”.
It is now in the care of the animal welfare charity.
