This post is not about family attractions in the Palmetto state. Instead I’ll put the spotlight on the Virgin Islands’ most exotic resident: the iguana!
Once thought almost extinct this walking dinosaur lizard is now roaming the beaches freely. Bold and beautiful they’re quite a sight to see. Here are the photos and video to prove it:
A curious one is ready to nibble at my fingers. No, I didn’t get to touch it…just got a good shot! 🙂
My favorite iguana liked to nestle in a tree at Sapphire Beach. Every other day she’ll come out and soak in the sun at her favorite spot. I think she just wanted to pose for me!
Here’s the “scientist”, an iguana that likes to observe the baby shark feedings at Coral World Aquarium and Zoo park.
Now for the finale, meet the Virgin Islands best buddies, the iguana and the recovering galapagos turtles:
Next time you’re vacationing in the Virgin Islands save a few shots for the magnificent iguanas.
