Green iguana

Iguana iguana


Iguanas sun themselves and spend a large portion of their day in trees. This one had a lot of attitude.


Spotted in the Florida Keys, green iguanas are considered invasive in FL. They're native to the Caribbean, as well as Central and S. Americas.


Also known as pollo de los árboles "chicken of the trees" or "stick hen" gallina de palo.

I see one of your tags for this is "Pollo de los árboles." That's funny. I've never heard that before. Thanks for the smile Mauna.

Thank you, Tukup! It was a decent size, just high up in the tree.

Beautiful shot Mauna. How big was it? I see that's been some time ago. You may not remember. I assume it is small/young to still have the brilliant colors.
