Virginia Beach

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — A pet store’s mascot has been found after he went missing late last week.

Pet Paradise’s reptile mascot “Ed” disappeared between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on July 5, according to employees.

Ed, an Argentine Tegu, has become the store’s mascot after living there for over 10 years. A spokesperson with the store says he was not up for adoption.

The store contacted animal control and local vet offices and also filed a police report after he disappeared.

Ed was found in a box of supplies he had climbed into, the store told Monday.

Ed is home and safe! Thank you to everyone for your thoughts and prayers.
