Baby Iguanas!!!

It must be baby iguana season in Grand Case, because near the airport I’ve started seeing the little critters. Last week, between rain showers, I photographed a couple of them, including one that was licking droplets off leaves of grass. He let me get very close, perhaps he was feeling sluggish in the overcast weather. As you can see from the large subtympanic scale, these are green, or common, iguanas Iguana iguana. These two were quite small, for iguanas, probably about four inches long excluding tail. They retain bright green coloration until they are several times larger than this.
