Iguanas in Guanacaste

My neighbor, Steven, is a force of nature. Today, he taught me how to hold an iguana! I chickened out actually picking the thing up, but I did rub its smooth, florescent belly. The whole thing started when the poor thing slipped into the pool, and Steven had to come to the rescue. Below are some shots of the other scaled lovelies that rule our neighborhood. (Look closely!)
