Back in college, a friend built a dredge he used to fill what is not the Walmart on Cape Coral. The iguanas were five feet long years ago, and not at all uncommon.

The “Endangered Florida Panther” team uses a plane with obsolete tracking gear (mo’ bureaucraps at the Feeding Trough that way), to track those pampered panthers. I have watched that place make the usual higher altitude passes and the final low pass over the “eco-reserve” just on the other side of one of the canals in his development.

Cats, ‘crats, huge reptiles and . . . Snakes Alive, it a python place, too!

“Gotta watch that irregularly shaped ammo. They tend to assume strange curves down range.”

I find the hex nuts fly pretty straight.

Got no problem with Florida critters, but it's getting so you've got to strap a board across your butt to keep from being swallowed by some damned critter that can't understand English.

We even have some Spanish speaking Anoles all the way up here.

“...it’s getting so you’ve got to strap a board across your butt to keep from being swallowed by some damned critter that can’t understand English”.

What kind of board can we strap across our butts to keep from being swallowed up by some collectivist beast?

Ans: One from an ammo box.

;-)

They're fun to watch, just can't understand what they say.

The hand waving is part of their breeding behavior, they get up high and wave at the lady lizards.

They are forcing the little Carolina Anoles out.

Ross says the iguanas have become a growing problem in her southeast Cape Coral neighborhood over the last year. She says she's tried a number of tactics to scare them off for good.

An enterprising resident should open a barbecued iguana stand!

I don't know, but I'm game to try it. I'll eat anything once.

Except beets.

Invasives are a major problem. Just think Everglades pythons, Asian carp, zebra mussels, starlings, and feral pigs.
