In the Wild!

Green Iguana’s

By now, I should be well used to seeing this lizard, native to Central and South America, some areas of the Caribbean and Mexico, which has so well adapted to South Florida; but he still makes me pause, whenever I see him lying out in the sun, on the seawall.

While not necessarily a friend to gardeners, given the iguana’s diet of primarily plant matter, including much loved orchids; I have never noticed them in my shade garden, where I keep my orchids, thus I simply step back and enjoy watching him in the sun.
