A large adult desert iguana gets used to me and the camera and lets me get very close before he crawls away and does a few push-ups. I crawled under a bush with the same friendly iguana seen to the left and tossed him a desert willow flower which he gobbled up for the camera. More fun than feeding squirrels in the park. Several Northern Desert Iguanas
in the Colorado Desert of California, U.S.A.
