My fondness for iguanas knows no limit. I keep telling myself I don't need any more pictures of iguanas. But every time I'm in the islands I keep taking more pictures of iguanas. Mostly they hang out in trees because they're arboreal and like to eat the new tender leaves and flowers that grow on the tips of branches. Iguanas are vegetarians, I don't think they even eat insects. They love flamboyant flowers, tamarind flowers and most especially they love hibiscus. They like lettuce too.
I always feel sad for the caged iguanas people keep as pets. The ones I've always seen don't have very good color because they haven't gotten enough sun. And the poor things have no where to climb. However, iguanas are smart and can be trained to walk on a leash and use a litter box. And they will gladly drape themselves across your shoulders.
Around our home in St. Thomas there may be as many as two dozen that live in the trees. Wait! Listen! Did you here that crashing of bush? Yep. It was an iguana. When they want to get from a high point to a low point they simply let go and fall. Crash, crash, crash! through the branches and leaves. They will fall from the top of a tree all the way to ground.
Even though they mostly hang out in trees, they can be found anywhere. On rocks by the beach (they are very good swimmers), near mangrove swamps, running across the road, and at public places where people feed them.
Anyways...here are some pictures of iguanas.
