    Palm Beach County, FL (WPTV) — A bobcat is apparently doing its part to control the growing iguana population in South Florida.

Vincent Sinagria snapped an unusual picture while on tram tour Thursday morning at the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge.

Sinagria’s picture shows a bobcat with a recently-caught green iguana in its mouth and toting it away.

The invasive species of lizard has experienced a population boom in South Florida over the last few years.

Iguanas can cause damage to the infrastructure by digging burrows that erode and collapse sidewalks, foundations and seawalls.
