A student found herself in a sticky situation recently after returning home to find that a nipple tape she had left on the shelf was moved. The culprit? A lizard. 

The university student, known as @Hibye.lovez on TikTok, shared about the lizard and her missing tape online on Monday. She was searching for the tape in her dorm room when she discovered that it had fallen onto the table, wedged between a router and a lamp, with the wide-eyed lizard stuck on it. 

“I just came back to the hall just after the weekend and I was just looking around my table … but I was like wait where’s the other one so I looked around my table and guess what? This little guy or girl landed on my nipple sticker, probably tried to crawl away but it got stuck on the adhesive,” she said in the first of two videos about the lizard.

She managed to rescue the lizard from its sticky misery. With gloves on her hands, the student used a pencil to carefully pry it away from the sticker, making sure she did not stab the lizard while doing so. The lizard was then released on the ground.

“So I have monitored the situation and I think it is ok to return it to the wild so I’m gonna just put it here. Bye bye!” she said.

So, ladies, the next time you’re leaving the house, make sure there are no nipple tapes lying around.
