Lizards eat dead owner.
Officers were called to 42-year-old Ronald Huff's apartment in Newark, Delaware, after he failed to show up for work.
They found Huff's body on the floor, with his pet lizards feeding on him. The cause of his death was not immediately known.
The Delaware Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals recovered seven lizards, the largest measuring 6 ft long and weighing 25 lb.
The lizards have small but very sharp teeth and muscular, whip-like tails that can seriously injure a person. In the wild, they eat eggs, birds and other animals
