Caught this guy climbing up a tree near my Mom’s home in South Florida. He was about 80 feet long. Ok – he was actually about two feet long – but he was one big iguana!
I grew up in South Florida and we always saw plenty of little lizards running around – most without tails as our cats liked to bite the tails off. But we never saw these huge iguanas until almost half a century later. Driving Question: What changed? Why were we seeing these huge iguanas all over South Florida?
Other authentic project ideas for younger children could be to learn about the iguana.
And I have always wondered, did those lizard tails ever grow back? Poor things…
