Everyone has heard of the movie, The Night of the Iguana. Now you can see an iguana in this photo, taken by our pond. The lime colored lizard is a herbivore, approximately six feet long and eleven pounds. It is rarely seen on Sanibel as it is not native to Florida. Because the iguanas are invasive, they are removed from the island when captured.
An iguana is quite a sight. Should you by chance spot one on Sanibel, it will flee from you. But let the authorities know of its whereabouts so our ecosystem can be protected.
