While in Belize and Honduras last September we saw quite a few Iguanas. They’re the biggest I’ve ever seen!
I also didn’t realize they can be orange.

They’re so prehistoric looking aren’t they.

Here’s the back end of an Iguana showing its huge tail, and really long toes.

Some of the Females hung out together in the shade on a slab of cement:

Iguana- The Poser

We saw some really neat wildlife in addition to the Iguana while on this trip. The Capuchin Monkey’s were super cute! I’ll be sharing images of them in the future.

I hope you all have a great week-end, and to those of you in the northeast USA I’m keeping you in my thoughts, and am hoping the storm isn’t too bad.  Stay warm and safe!

More to come…









  1. Love this, Deborah. It is nice to see these creatures in their habitat, not in tanks.

  2. Beautiful and interesting. A rock monitor walked into the neighbors house last week, causing a little bit of a laugh and some commotion, hehe.

    • Oh wow! From a photographer’s point of view that would have neat. From a homeowner’s not so much! 🙂

  3. Wow! they do look like prehistoric creatures! The photos capture the details and personality!

  4. I’ve only seen these fellas at the zoo, they are huge, I couldn’t imagine coming upon one in the wild. Love that last shot, he does look like he’s smiling for you! 🙂

    • Thank you for the comment! It was incredible seeing them everywhere. I asked a few people if people ate them, and they said yes sometimes. They taste good, but it’s an acquired taste they all said. I bet! 🙂

  5. Iguanas fascinate me – never seen any quite as big as these though!!

  6. They are beautiful. I had no idea they could be so colorful. Great photos.

    • Thank you Dan! Me either I’d only seen them smaller and green before seeing them in the wild while on this trip.

  7. they are so wonderful and ancient!

    • They are! Thank you for the comment Cybele! Hope you’re doing okay up there. I read you guys are having a cold, snowy week-end too.
