Hey! Are you open? Is anyone there?

The iguana I showed yesterday pressed his nose up against the glass door on the car rental office, apparently frustrated that the office was closed.

Iguanas are peaceful and do not bother people. As you can tell, this iguana allowed me to kneel down right next to him to get this photo from very close range.

Right next to the door where this iguana was standing was the airline ticket counter where people were checking in for their flight. There were probably 10 people on a bench within 10 feet (3 meters) of this iguana.

Although this iguana was frustrated at not getting inside the car rental office, he was not done wit his airport visit, as I will show tomorrow.

This is called a black iguana, but they are actually brown or olive-brown, with black bands, as you can see in this photo. Ctenosaurs lack the spiny scales running down their back that green iguanas have.

On our travel photo site, Viva la Voyage, we are showing some photos what we think is the world's most artistic and impressive cemetery, Recoleta, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Come to the website for a visit.

He's kind of cute in a reptilian sort of way.

this is really funny. do you think they feed him occasionally and he is a wild pet. he is going to the do and scratching to get in like a pet dog would.

I wonder if he had a lady iguana he had arranged to meet in there ala When Harry Met Sally.

Nice close up. I'm glad to hear that they don't bother people. He looks as if he would have a nasty bite.

How nice to see that nature and civilisation can live that close together.

I'm loving these iguana posts! I love your sense of humor here, and what a nice shot of the iggy's eye! I have both green iguanas and more nice shots of Oregon on my Tapirgal's Daily Image blog if you're interested: http://tapirgalsdailyimage.blogspot.com/ Meanwhile, I'm about to pop over to your travel blog to see the cemetery. Thanks for the info about Julie. I really enjoy getting to know the CDP community.
