(Relaxnews) - What do wigs, prosthetic legs and birds have in common? All have been named as among some of strangest items left behind in -- even more bizarrely -- both planes and taxi cabs.

In the latest survey of global taxi cabs by Hotels.com, a wig and a live caged bird were named as among the strangest items left behind in a taxi cab in the US, while “a prosthetic leg and an ex-boyfriend” were identified as items lost in a taxi somewhere in Australia.

The list of strangest items left behind in a cab is not unlike Skyscanner’s list released this summer, which polled 700 international cabin crew on the bizarre items they’ve found after passengers deplaned.

Despite boarding their flights with carry-on baggage that included live animals, apparently flyers are prone to leaving their feathered, amphibian and hard-shelled friends on board, as flight attendants have found everything from tortoises, frogs, parrots and even a falcon on the aircraft.

Like the Hotels.com survey, the in-flight survey also found that travellers tend to forget their wigs, toupées, and sadly, their prosthetic leg on the plane.

Meanwhile, other random items left behind in Hotels.com’s taxi survey included a trombone in a Finnish cab; a Rubik’s cube in Italy; and dentures in Germany, an item that’s also been found on planes.
