Box of Reptiles Delivered to Wrong House in Lower Hudson Valley

With more and more people shopping from home, mistakes can sometimes happen. We’ve all had a bad delivery or two. But usually, we’re talking about an Amazon mix-up, or maybe your grocery order is missing a few key items. Sometimes your package is stolen by pirates. However, when something that is actually alive and breathing is delivered to your doorstep by mistake, that’s going to cause a bit of a stir.

How would you feel if you opened a box, thinking it was clothes or maybe an electronic item, and it was actually several lizards of some sort? The ap reports that’s what happened on Saturday when a box of small reptiles accidentally arrived at a home in Port Chester.

The Port Chester Police Department shared a photo of the reptiles on his Facebook page.

If you lost your lizards and iguanas we have them in the PD.

A box of live reptiles was delivered to the wrong address.

Needless to say, the recipient was quite startled when he opened the box.

They went on to say that the resident who opened the box was quite surprised at what they had found, as expected. The National Desk says it was unclear if there were more reptiles that were not photographed at the police station. Anyone miss some dark colored lizards?

Remember this story from October?

Police say some unexpected stowaways likely traveled from Hawaii and arrived in New York state last October. The item, which police say a person ordered online, contained an additional nasty surprise inside.

WROC says that officials received a call from a residence that there was a scorpion inside the package. But while officials aren’t quite sure how the scorpion got into the box, they don’t think it was an intentional act of any kind. They believe that the scorpion simply got into the package or the order that was inside the package.

WROC he later reported that there were several scorpions in the package. The recipient’s name is Paul Brenner, who is the drummer for the band, joywave. Brenner had reportedly ordered a T-shirt and shoes from the vendor, not a bunch of arachnids.

Do scorpions live in New York?

Scorpions are not generally found in New York, as they are cold-blooded invertebrates that prefer warmer climates. Winters in the Northeast are too cold for them, plus there are plenty of natural predators that would make a scorpion an easy snack. However, there is a species called pseudoscorpions (or book scorpions) that are found in New York. These tiny creatures belong to the class of arachnids and lack the curved “tail” that scorpions are known for.
