Big Boy Belize Iguana... "El Garrobo"

This afternoon, at a friend's place, we saw this quite large Iguana. The tip of his nose is 18 inches off the ground and from nose to tip of tail is 5 feet.
Apparently, in Spanish... "El Garrobo"

Yup... and the eggs. Not a common practice, I don't believe, but it does happen.
