One of the few iguanas that wasn't sleeping

As you may know, I am into reptiles and in particular I love iguanas. I had a green iguana for many years (may he rest in peace).
Today, I went with my La Fortuna friends here to a place that is great for watching green iguanas. They were quite big (and fat), much larger than any others I had seen in the wild. They were also extremely lazy and sleepy. They did not seem to appreciate my excitement about them.

Is this iguana not afraid of heights? Or suicidal? DON'T JUMP! You have every reason to live!

    If you would have thrown them a “sock” things might have turned out differently… ūüôā

    Excellent idea. I must confess I did not think of that option. For those of you who do not know what an iguana love sock is / missed my winter seminar talk about iguanas, please follow this link: http://www.herpcenter.com/reptile-caresheets/green-iguana/iguana-love-sock.html
