Spring Break 2018: The Green Iguana

Iguana iguana, the Green iguana;
Miami-Dade county, Florida (18 March 2018).
Series: Spring Break 2018.

How about a little appreciation of the greenish glory of a wild and young Green iguana hanging out in your hands…? Yeah, Green iguanas (young and old alike) are not easy to catch by hand, but my heavens… they sure are worth the effort. I get lost in those greens… And this one had some excellent brown markings. A non-native species, the Green iguana now ranges throughout much of south Florida. Adult males can reach lengths of up to five feet or so. This little camper wasn’t quite that big… yet.
