thanks, guys. i really love the textures.

hung, this is one of two iguanas that were apparently released by owners. south florida has a big problem with released iguanas. no, it is not a pet and i get close carefully! i understand they can be dangerous. the other pond residing iguana is lime green.

i think the pond is large and diverse enough to fill the iguanas food needs. they do not eat the bread i throw to them and i tried broccoli but they didn't eat that either. one of my friends fed his iguana broccoli and made that suggestion. i have seen lettuce and celery left out for them but i don't think they ate it. i think they find enough bugs and vegetation around the pond.

whatever they eat, someone who saw another pic i took said that the animal was obviously healthy. that's all i can ask for. in the meantime, i will continue to get pics of them because they are so cool looking!

thanks again for looking . . . and liking! i value your responses as i do YOUR pics!

p.s. dan, i don't find them ugly at all! just fascinatingly textured. :-)

Ellen,I hear you! There is no uglyin the animal kingdom...only beauty in its own right! Maybe I should have chosen a better adjective like "fascinating":-). dan

Really like the first one, even though I wouldn't want to get to close to him.
