Lovely photo, what a handsome beast. Technically however, Iguanas and all lizards come from a line which is older and more primitive than the dinosaurs. The caption Modern Dinosaur would be more accurate if applied to a picture of a chicken.
Excellent observation. Thank you. They are fascinating creatures, whatever you call them. Anyway, we claim artistic license! :)
And rightly so.
Beautiful lighting, what a gorgeous creature.
Did you climb up a tree Maya?
