Iguana Mía


The dogs alerted me that there was an iguana around so I grabbed my telephoto to go check it out. He was high up in the hibiscus (amapola) bush just waiting for his photo debut. Judging by the scar on his neck, he probably squeezed out of the link fence trying to escape the mighty 'four force' in his younger day (or a noose). Some people still eat these.

Hey, wait a minute! Wolfie, I ate chicken in Puntarenas. It did kinda taste like frog legs. Teri tell me it is'nt so. I think I'm going to be ill.

When our tico worker Luiz is on lunch break, sometimes I ask what he's having. Usually he says "iguana". But with a grin, which keeps me guessing. So probably I'll never know and probably I don't want to know...
I don't know why people think frog legs taste like chicken. They taste like frog legs to me.

I guess if people didn't eat them, they might take over around here. I just love to photograph them. Now, my camera is in the shop but I'll be back shooting soon.

I had my first taste in Belize. We got invited to the homes of folks we had seen in clinic and after lots of Beer , we were treated to "Bamboo Chicken". It was pretty good, but I thought it was Chicken grilled on bamboo skewers...NOT!And although that would not ever be on my shopping list,, it was the Sharing with New friends that made it a joyous meal. I would do it again.

Barry, thanks for your story, if I ever have Bamboo Chicken here, I'll try and be as polite as you were in that situation. -t
