A school in the Panhandle found an unusual item in a student's backpack on Monday.

According to the Bay District Schools, a student snuck a bearded dragon named "Jango" on campus in a Vera Bradley backpack.

The student who brought the animal to school didn't want to see him sad at home all alone and so she brought him to school for some company, according to the school district.

The school says it was able to contact Jango's adult owner and returned home after the reptile was temporarily confiscated and put into a mail courier box.
