Bad day to be an iguana

there are many, many ways in which life can go badly wrong if you are a green iguana in Venezuela. I was very surprised however to learn that this is one of them.

See the iguana? Venezualan Great Horned Owls are bad-ass.

Eat or be eaten.

You have AMAZING photos on here. The Biology teacher in me gets excited every time she sees them.

But, I only see PART of a green iguana... or is my perspective off?

sally - you can see two sections of iguana - the front foot and a bit of head are what the owl is stood on and then the tail and back bit is visible to the left of the palm frond. going on the coloration of the tail its a pretty big iguana.

Thanks Keetha, glad you enjoyed it!
