THIS charming reptile was involved in a dramatic rescue mission earlier today.

A dog walker in Brize Norton spotted the Bearded dragon in a field and instantly called nearby zoo, Crocodiles of the World.

The fully grown male is not one of the zoo's own, yet reptile keepers went to take a look and managed to catch him.

Crocodiles of the World is now looking to reunite him with his owners.

He is in a very good condition, and is likely to have escaped a garden whilst soaking up some rays this afternoon.
