An Iguana with a message

My Iguana-friend here says I need to start speeding this up. In his spare time he enjoys eating the mangos that fall from the trees at Rancho Don Pedro. They're so yummy! My husband actually declared Rancho Don Pedro an "Iguana Sanctuary". He sure did. The workers kept catching them and eating them for lunch during their lunch break. Even though the green ones are more attractive than the black and white ones, there are also Iguanas that are almost gold. They are huge and massive and very territorial. When angry they will fight, hiss, and the spikes on their back will stand up. The neck will bulge and they can be a frightening sight. I have yet to get a good picture of a gold Iguana... someday.
