Do you wanna Iguana?


Iguanas are plentiful in Costa Rica. If you look up in the trees, you may be under the watchful eye of an iguana. As you walk along almost any path, you may see an iguana leave as you approach. Even in town, they can be seen walking across a sidewalk as they head into the bushes.

Most iguanas are grey in color and walk slowly as their torso waddles from side to side with each step. They resemble miniature dinosaurs.

Baby iguanas are bright green in color and are even cute in appearance. They may be mistaken for a gecko. Few would call adult iguanas cute. Iguanas become more colorful, like this one, when they are attempting to attract a mate.

They're not aggressive, are they? Running into one just about anywhere sounds scary.

Hilda,
They are not aggressive. If they are in a tree, they will just stay there. If they are on the ground, they will walk away when you approach within about 2 meters.

We have them in Key Largo. If you get close they jump into the water. But when our grandson (31 months old) goes near them, he can get as close as two feet. We do keep a close eye on the young boy.
