Who Says There Aren't Any Dragons?

This is a Northern Bahamian Rock Iguana, about 5 feet long from tip to tail. There are only 5000 left in the wild, and I was lucky to see three on an uninhabited island. My wife and I spent a week kayaking from desert island to desert island, and because there are so few visitors, the Bahamian Rock Iguana was apparently thriving. On other populated islands, they have been hunted to extinction as a source of food.
