photographing and learning about wildlife
I'm fairly certain this guy was deceased when we found him. We were following a hawk we spotted near our cabin when we came upon him along the path. Our theory is the hawk tried to pick him up and was unsuccessful. A few light prods with my boot yielded no movement, although I study primates, so I'm not sure if iguanas "play possum." We left him be and about a half hour later we came back and he was gone. I'm not sure if the hawk came back to claim his prize or if the iguana left.
