-2 Found "Goldie" today lying on this branch just after a scuffle with a smaller Iquana claiming his tree.We have a few of these in our backyard which is basically in one of the numerous mangrove forests here in Culebra, Puerto Rico. "Goldie" has managed to elude cats, dogs, hawks and other dangers to a length of 4½ feet at least. So i dashed in to grab my camera of course! He was still there on my return and was allowed to snap off a few shots.... Hope u like it.

Goldie is gorgeous! Such wonderful colors. Great shot. But, wow, 4 1/2 feet! That's big. Hope he continues to elude all the dangers. (BTW, what are the symbols at the top of the photo?)
