This green iguana is a spiky prehistoric looking visitor along a canal in Boca Raton, FL. It's coloration is striking. It's about about 4 feet long with a striped tail that is visible in one of the photos. It eats vegetation - including garden plants and dives into the canal when you get too close.
Along an inland fresh water canal.
We have had iguanas lay eggs in holes dug in our canal bank. And when the blackbirds uncovered the nests it was pure mayhem as they stole all the eggs, flying away with them one at a time.
