BRIGHTON, ENGLAND – MAY 29: Reptile Rescue Coordinator Tom Bunsell handles an Argentine black and white tegu at the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) reptile rescue centre on May 29, 2015 in Brighton, England. The RSPCA collected 1,853 reptiles last year, an increase of seven percent from 2013. The RSPCA is the worlds’ largest and oldest animal welfare charity, it was established in 1824 and celebrated its 190th anniversary last year. A suffering animal is brought into RSPCA care every four minutes and the RSPCA took more than a million calls to its cruelty line last year. The RSPCA has 16 centres and 166 independently run branches. (Photo by Carl Court/Getty Images)
