Exuma Iguanas by Cole

The Exuma Iguanas are among the world’s most endangered lizards and are found nowhere else.  They live on two islands in the Exumas.  We went to the beach on Allen’s Cay and saw the iguanas.  When we pulled up in our dinghy, a bunch of iguanas ran out of the trees towards us.

The iguanas look like dinosaurs and can live to be 80 years old.  They can weigh up to 24 pounds.Iguana2

 

Here is a picture of me on the beach with the iguanas.
