    Maybe they think red toenail polish looks like maraschino cherries; here is a funny account of a lady who got an unexpected nibble.

    Iguanas spread salmonella

    The iguanas that once inhabited the Palm beach area seemed to have disappeared over the recent 3 years.

    Kinda miss them, but I didn't really care for the poop and smell they bring.

    They hotels have made a conscious effort to "relocate" many of them, especially the larger ones.

    We have noticed that there are very few hanging around at Paradise Beach Villas. Much less then in past years. I'm fine with that.

    I've seen this happen too. They don't seem scared at all.

    Iguana habitats on a resort can be entertaining, even a little extreme. After a few hours they eventually find a cabana with curious guest and warm up to them for junk food (chips, Doritos). Once this alpha lizard, which was actually more orange than green, spotted this activity and climbed down for a snack as the subordinate lizards made way for him and scattered. My nephew and niece challenged Uncle steve to capture the animal. I abided unsuccessfully receiving a tail whip and a hilarious head bob. The following day, I am not kidding, as I was relaxing beside the pool this same lizard boldly crawled right up to me and attacked my hand drawing blood. Spent the remaining 5 minutes rinsing with hot water, soap, alcohol, and antibiotic. Last thing I needed was a ruined vacation.
