Lay of the land

You know he's walking around like he's got the lay of the land. This iguana was in our backyard one afternoon and I had to make haste and tread lightly to capture this before he got away, which they are quick to do most times. What was amusing was watching him bob his head a few times, as he made his way out of our reach. I wouldn't want to get any closer though, not because they're not harmful (unless provoked), they're just not the prettiest things. And since they're quick on their feet, you never know which direction its going to take. Iguana roadkill is the worst kind I've seen here in Cayman and although I should know better than avoid taking a look, I inevitably do. Will I ever learn?

Iguana's a local Mexican place. Great prickly pear margaritas!

Yech! Hate 'em, hate 'em, hate 'em. Let's not talk about the one who lived in my yard and terrorised me. I am still traumatised.

Zen: Well then I know where to go and who to go with on my next trip to NY right?

Mighty Afroditee: Hehe this almost as bad as my Bda landlady and her fear of frogs.

BB: I haven't freaked out yet and as long as they keep their distance, I don't think I will.
