Baby iguana

On the little path from the swimming pool gate of our condo to the beach we can often see little baby iguanas in the bushes. For some reason, I see baby iguanas here more often than adult ones. Maybe this is an area where the iguanas like to lay their eggs for some reason.

There are several easy ways to tell the difference between a baby iguana and a gecko. Iguanas have pointed toes and claws, whereas geckos have round pads on the tips of their toes. Geckos usually come out at night, where as iguanas are active during the day.

Today is Sunday, so we have new photos on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. This week we have returned to Chicago to share more of the magnificent architecture of this city, plus a view of sunrise over Lake Michigan.

I still probably wouldn't be able to tell the difference, but thanks for helping out. The colors help it to blend in. The tail looks like a stick.
