Spiny-Tailed Iguana

Ctenosaura similis


This iguana and others liked to rest in or on top of this tourist shop next to the Tárcoles River in Costa Rica. The employees said they feed them every day. They even gave me and my group a banana and let us feed them (second photo)!


They liked to be in and around the tourist shop, but the tourist shop was not in the city; it was along a road that ran through a wild area.
