I is for Iguana - ABC Wednesdays

A couple years ago, we spent our Christmas in a very non traditional manner.  Seeing that everyone had alternative plans and we would be home alone anyway, Vincent and I decided to join a couple friends and spend Christmas in Cozumel.  Needless to say we had a wonderful time.  It was by far one of the most relaxing vacations I have ever had. 

While there I snapped these photos of the local Iguanas.  They seem to be everywhere and came in an assortment of colors.  I thought they would be a fine addition to this weeks ABC Wednesday where the letter of the week is I.  Enjoy.

We had an iguana named Bob for 9 years. She was a very unusual pet and I didn't expect to be so fond of her. They are so "aware" of their surroundings. I had friends who would not come inside the house unless Bob was in her cage...fear. And she seemed to know that and rattle things about to test them and their fears. Funny animal. These are lovely pictures.

I got your gift in the mail. Thank you soooo much. I love everything especially the alamanac. I was wondering what is in the perfume bottle?

Fantastic! There have been a few featured in this week's ABC Wednesday - so nice to see them in their natural habitat rather than as a captive pet!

Thanks
