1/5/2012 - The Lost World

We went on a little dinghy ride with our friends Dave and Marj from s/v Kievit this afternoon. Just a short ride away is a restaurant that is supposed to be first rate. We were going to check it out. But first we made a little detour. Earlier in the day Dave and Marj had done some dinghy exploring and happened a cross this rock sidehill at El Cid Marina that was covered with iguanas. They took us to see.

Be sure to click on the photos to enlarge them.

You have to look pretty close to see the ones in the background but the orange-striped guy in the front really stands out.

These were all taken with a digital zoom so the quality isn't the best but it's the only way to get the shot.

I know I saw these guys or their ancestors in lots of low-budget sci-fi and adventure flicks when I was a kid. Blow them up and have them chase the heroes through the jungle and you've got yourselves some Hollywood dinosaurs.

BTW, the menu at the restaurant looked good but we didn't eat there today. Stand by for the review in a subsequent edition.

How cool to get to see the iguanas. Naturally, I have never seen one here in Idaho! So I am guessing they are about 12 inches long or so?? That would have been a highlight for me on a trip.

RE: Iguana length... You have to remember that their tails are really long. So, tails included, I'd say the shortest one we saw was about 2' long and the largest maybe 4-5'. Of course, their bodies are probably less than half of their overall length. t was way cool to see so many.
