Iguana

After finishing our boat ride in which we saw the crocodile shown during the past week, we walked on the river bank and who was our greeting party? This iguana.

This iguana seems especially dinosaur-like. Reptiles such as the crocodile and iguana are, of course, relatives of dinosaurs. Some reptile species have been around for 200 million years, outliving dinosaurs by 60 million years or so.

This week we are showing photos of the Villa Melzi on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. If you have not been to the shores of Lake Como in Bellagio, Italy, come take a visit by clicking on the link to our website.

More interesting and less menacing than the croc...I'd welcome this fella anytime.

I agree with Kate, much less menacing than the croc. These guys seem like a friendly sort.

I knew someone who had an iguana as a pet once.
It didn't look very pet-able to me. But they are kind of fun to watch.
