Green Iguana (Iguana iguana), (closeup), Restaurante Las Iguanas, Muelle, Costa Rica, 2012

One of the eponymous iguanas of Restaurante Las Iguanas, a famous stop on the road from la Fortuna to the Rio Frio and CaƱo Negro. A large number of them inhabit the bamboo and trees near the restaurant/gift shop, attracted by the food the owner leaves for them. Iguanas in Costa Rica are know as Gallina de palo, “Chicken of the Tree,” since they used to be eaten by poor Ricos.
