Prehistoric monster photographed in the Camelia River (Tropicana Park)

This green iguana is probably a male.  Its descendants go back thousands of years.  It was on the banks but then jumped into the water.  It is a florescent green with a striped tail.  Size is about 1 1/2  feet, but they can get much bigger. You can eat them…if you can catch them–this one is a fast swimmer.  Mature iguanas are herbivores mostly, but they can eat mammals.

 

It brings to mind the Academy Award winning move  “The Shape of Water.”  Here is a trailer.

 

 

And from The Shape of Water is, by Alexandre Desplat, “Elisa’s Theme.”
