This is your run of the mill, garden variety Iguana. There really is nothing unusual about him except, the garden is mine. We never had these lizards until a few years ago. They began showing up after one of our hurricanes. They were rather amusing at first. You would see them eating an Hibiscus flower while lounging in the Sun. It's what most tourists do in our town (the flower is usually adorning their libation). The problem began when they(the Iguanas) heard the sermon that goes, "Be fruitful and multiply." They did and now we are over-run with them. On a recent dog walk, my wife and I counted over 15 of them in one location. Enough is enough. The guy above is about average in size, some are considerably larger. With no natural predators, their numbers will continue to increase. Oh happy days!
