Now, I'm used to lizards. I'm even used to the rather large ones that thrive in my yard. I prefer them to any instect.

But I just wasn't ready for THIS guy when I went out to get my mail.



About the size of an Iguana or a baby Alligator but obviously not either.

This is the largest lizard I have ever seen.

Is some assclown breeding raptors?

That is a Cuban Night Anole, they sell them at the Petco down here.

Yeah, they're cute when they are babies but then they grow up to be a 5 ft. chicken with wings for its ears that hocks poisonous oysters in your eye and then eats you alive. Stomp it QUICK!!

Lizard joke for the day...


A monkey is sitting in a tree, smoking a joint, when a gecko lizard walks past. The lizard looks up and says to the monkey "Hey! what are you doing?"

The monkey says "Smoking a joint, come up and join me, my cold-blooded friend." So the lizard climbs up and sits next to the monkey and they have some joints. After a while the lizard says his mouth is 'dry', and that he's going to get a drink from the river. At the riverbank, the lizard is so stoned that he leans too far over and falls in. A Crocodile sees this and swims over to the stoned lizard, helping him to the side.


The croc asks the lizard, "What's the matter with you?!" The lizard tells the crocodile that he was sitting in the tree, smoking a joint with his new monkey friend. Then he explained how his mouth got dry, and that he was so wasted that, when he went to get a drink from the river, he fell in!

The inquisitive crocodile says he has to check this out. He walks into the jungle and finds the tree where the monkey is sitting, finishing a joint.
The croc looks up and says "Hey, MONKEY!"

The Monkey looks down and says "FU-U-U-U-UCK, DUDE....... how much water did you DRINK?"

They get big and their faces turn black when you piss em off. I have Basilisks and Cuban Anoles all over my neighborhood.

The largest Iguana I ever saw was in Miami. It was just hanging on the side of a tree, the thing must have been better than 6 feet long from head to tail. It was huge and had a bad temper. Scared the crap out of me.

6 foot ?!?

See that is large enought to challenge my position in the food chain. It might have to die.

It had a bad temper? Cavu...Iguanas are vegetarians. They don't get bad tempers.
They're about the meekest, mildest, reptile on earth.

Maybe nice and sweet in captivity but certainly not in the wild. Every Iguana I came across in the wild was pretty tough and fiesty. I caught a 5 footer in my neighbors yard and it actually came at me. It was extremely aggresive. Oh an I have seen them eat birds and mice and dragonflies.

I've got a 6 footer that I see frequently a few canals over when out in the canoe. First time I saw him in the water swimming, I thought it was a gator.
The largest I've ever seen on my dock was about 4ft.

We have some in the canal behind my house. I thought they were otters at first because their heads were so huge. I love watching them hunt along the canal banks looking for rats and bugs.

Not if you feed them meat. Iguanas fed a veggie diet have very different temperments then the meat eaters.

Naw man, it was the Abonible (sp?) Snowman that caught Bugs and wanted to keep him as a pet. Then he caught Daffy and tried the same thing on him. It was taken from "Of Mice and Men".

how bout you open the door and this is waiting for a handout (dont put your hand out btw)..

No kidding. South Florida is something else.

I remember a three-foot iguana falling out of a tree about two feet to my right one day in Miami Lakes. Scared the hell out of me. No big deal, really, but when you hear a big WHUMP right next to you and you look down to see a rather bewildered bright-green lizard staring back at you, you tend to jump for a second.
