wow... thats a scary lookin thing.. is it in the wild?
well, the iguanas aren't domesticated, but they're not really wild either.
they wander loose around caribbean islands, so in that sense they're wild. but there's a group that lives within the (highly domesticated) westin resort on st. john. you can hold out hibiscus flowers there and the iguanas will eat them right out of your hand. i have a few shots of us feeding them in the 'westin resort' section of the st. john photos, starting with this one.
they look pretty fierce, but actually they're herbivores. they don't even have teeth!
Incredible detail on the lizard's skin. It almost looks like chain mail from the middle ages.
