A few shots of Green Iguanas taken in the San Pedro area

LET US MEET THE FRIENDLY IGUANA, commonly known in Belize as "GUANA." It belongs to the reptile family in the animal kingdom, in Belize.

In my long experience watching iguanas, at my place of birth, near the Belize Old River, the male, called GARROBO has a CREST. Some are Brown Red and some are Black Gray.

They are mostly found near a river, especially on high wild FIG TREES.

In old Belize, GUANA was a delicacy especially the eggs (Guana and White Rice and cooked with coconut or cohune oil and seasoned with Currie powder). BAMBOO CHICKEN, was its common name.

In recent past, iguanas were invaded, especially by the massive increase of immigrants, but they can still be found in some far away rivers and now established hatcheries. They are now protected by law. In April/May they are laying eggs in the sand for the next generation of Iguanas.
