{Not so} local wildlife

I just want to share these pictures I took with you all!
So check this guy out. He is our local Iguana... well it could be a girl, not sure. He is probably about 4 to 5 feet long and hangs out around the canal behind our house.
Here he is on the roof of the 2 story apartment building across the canal.

Here he is on our side of the canal, 5 feet from our patio door!

And here is another of his profile.

Iguana's aren't native to South Florida but they do thrive here. They are usually pets that got to big and the nimrod owners just release them. I'm not sure of this one's story but he is very wary of people and only lets you get about 6 feet away before taking off so he could possibly have hatched in the wild. But either way he seems to be healthy and is pretty interesting to watch.
Happy Sunday!
