Iguana Interrupts Tennis Match

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

UNIDENTIFIED SPORTSCASTER #1: Whoa. That's an interesting fan.

UNIDENTIFIED SPORTSCASTER #2: Oh.

GREENE: Play stopped as officials tried to coax the reptile away. The iguana posed for a selfie with one player, then darted across the court.

UNIDENTIFIED SPORTSCASTER #2: This is incredible. It's making a run for it.

GREENE: Quite a racket. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
