MOUNT CLEMENS -- Authorities say a Michigan man has been taken to a hospital after being bitten by his 4-foot-long pet lizard.
The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens reports emergency workers were called Sunday night to the home in Macomb County's Lenox Township, about 35 miles northeast of Detroit.
Lenox Township Fire Chief Dennis Fouchia says it's the first time he's encountered a reptile bite in his career.
The pet owner was expected to be treated and released. Additional details about the man and the circumstances surrounding the bite weren't released.

    Oh, Mark! Love your comment! I'm a grammar ma'am, myself. So I correct you. "Never learned high school grammar but still WRITES for a news organization." (TEE HEE. Thanks for my chuckle of the day! And ... no harm intended!)
