My Travelers' Wildlife Guides book on Costa Rica (by Les Beletsky) makes the observation that green iguanas "don't move much, and when they do it's often in slow motion" and that "they are fun to discover, but boring to watch."
One of the readers of this blog left a comment several days ago saying that she thought iguanas were green, so I decided to post this photo to show the difference between the green iguanas and black iguanas. Green iguanas are a little larger than the black iguanas. They grow to 2 meters (6.5 ft) in length. Green iguanas have more prominent scales running down the ridge of their back and dew sacs under their chin.
On our travel photo site, Viva la Voyage, we are showing some photos of what we think is the world's most artistic and impressive cemetery, Recoleta, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Come to the website for a visit.
