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.”
