Flight Of The Iguana

“Look! Up in the sky!  It’s a bird!  It’s a plane!  It’s an iguana on the top of the patio enclosure!”

Beautiful creatures; a throwback to the primordial life on the planet, and quite mellow.  This one let me take its picture several times, then wandered off to find some lunch.  I’ll take them any day over the peacocks who squawk and leave turds the size of baseballs.

PS: Someone once asked if they are dangerous.  The only time iguanas pose a danger to humans is when the weather gets cold.  They are cold-blooded, and when the temperature dips they become comatose and fall out of the trees and land on a person.  It’s happened.

  1. I went to change the dog’s water bowl one day last week and there was a baby ghecko doing the back stroke in there.
