IGUANAS... LOVE THEM OR HATE THEM?


In 2010, I took a trip to Belize. One of our tourist adventures, was a visit to the Iguana hatchery. We were told that Iguana is a regular dish, and the population was dwindling. There was a hatchery to help repopulate the area. At that time, we thought the iguana was a very interesting animal.

After I moved to Key West, I discovered the iguana could be a big nuisance. They eat your flowers, your vegetables, and poop on your porch and boat. They are a very interesting looking animal, but I don't care for them living in my yard.

While I was lounging under the coconut palm trees today, two came wandering up. I usually just run them off, not watch them. But today, I observed their behavior. It seemed that the one pictured above is a mature male, and the slender, bright green one below is a female. It must be mating season for the male, he was making amorous advances to the female, but she wasn't in the mood. Seem it's no different in the animal world.  lol
