Oh wow - lucky you!

It's always such a special moment when wildlife chooses to share our homes.

Do you know what kind of iguana it is?

well florida has these green iguanas too and in plentiful amounts...you wont believe it but here in trinidad the green iguana is a delicacy...(sadly).(they curry the meat)...and they have been placed on the threatened list...however in my area where i live the people here dont eat them..because they are basically high end people..and high end people dont really eat this..its simply not necessary when there is chicken and other common meats available. so these guys roam from yard to yard and they are breeding :) so there will be iguana in my area

Iguanas are awesome, I know someone that has one that is around like 5 feet long. They setup an untied room in their house for him. They have lights hooked up and everything. I wish I lived somewhere with more exotic wildlife like Florida, though water snakes would freak me out lol.

There are like 20billion and 2 (exxageration) iguanas here. I live in FL, and my old college campus has at least 20 living/roaming the property. They're really cool to look at, I dont know about eating them though... >.>

Heey I live in Florida!:D I once had 2 gigantic iguanas in my backyard but they scared me because I was smaller. Now in my science class though, we have a pet Cuban Knight Anole named Jared, and he changes colors!:D If we put a green textbook under his tank he gets really vibrant, and replace it with a black mat he'll get super dark and black. Its really cool(:

We do have a lot of wildlife, but a lot of that wildlife are invaders. I live about 30 min. from the Everglades and there are Burmese Pythons everywhere from people releasing them as pets when they get too big. There have been reported cases of a large python eating an alligator than dying from it o.o lol fun fact.

I was watching a show on discovery with the snake wranglers in Florida, they said most of the big non native species that are loose there are from when hurricane katrina took out the building that they housed confiscated animals at( don't remember the name of this place off the top of my head though)
