A new Iguana in the Yard

I love these lizards! They are so interesting and exotic looking. Lately we have had a new one visiting us, one with a pink face. It’s big but not nearly as skittish as the big green one that visits occasionally. This one also eats everything – fruit, broccoli, lettuce, banana peels, anything we put out there unlike the others who seem to prefer papaya. No wonder this one has trouble making it through the fence.

Word in the neighborhood is that iguanas are seen in the summer. If this is true, I’m not going to see them for many months after the rains return. I’m sure going to miss them and look forward to next summer. They are definitely my favorite visitors.
