Iguana

Description:

yellow-green, bright, scale skin. about 8" body with a 6" tail. triangular ridges up its spine. Long thin fingers with claws.

Habitat:

Tropics - Low Land. Near water.

Notes:

This animal was perch in a tree outside my front door. It moved and that is when it caught my eye. It blended so well that everytime I tried to take its photo and look at the display, I couldn't see him. His scaly skin was a perfect match to the leaves.
