Now It's Iguanas Getting Their Cocks Chopped Off

An iguana stuck with a permanent erection after a mating session at a Belgian zoo may have to have his penis amputated if the condition does not improve.

The reptile, called Mozart, has been stuck with the problem since a routine mating session at the Aquatopia zoo in Antwerp, Belgium, six days ago.

Zoo staff believe he may have picked up an infection from a "bit of dirt" from one of three female iguanas, writes Sky News Europe Correspondent Greg Milam.

Mozart had "spent the evening with" Truus, Pepina and Bianca, who he now has to be separated from.


But the lizard may not be too upset at his new situation - vets at the zoo say he has shown no obvious signs of distress.

At an emergency medical meeting, concerned staff weighed up all the possible options and decided that there is just one course of action left open to them.

This week they will have to chop off the offending organ.

"It is very sad for him, but it is the only thing we can do," said one staff member.

Mozart is not the first iguana to suffer the "red swelling".

But visitors to the zoo have no need to feel too sorry for him as he faces the unkindest cut of all - iguanas, like koalas, are born with two penises
