They were all alive! This guy was about 80cm long, including his tail.

Hi Mark Ridgway, I did take this picture myself, this iguana is from Tulum Mexico and there were many of them to photograph. Thank you for the info.

Hi ttylerrussell. Welcome to Project Noah. I hope you like the site as much we do; there are many features you can explore:
I invite you to go to where you will find the purpose and “rules” of Project Noah. The first rule is that you can only post pictures you yourself have taken of living (and occasionally dead) organisms, so you'll need to remove this spotting and replace it with a picture you have taken of an organism, not a picture from a book. Thanks for understanding.
There is a blog where we post articles from spotters with special insight into different organisms.
There are also the chats for help with identification, and to comment on your own and others’ spottings.
Look at the global and local missions to put your spottings into:
Enjoy yourself here, see you around!
