Iguanas are back!

The iguanas are back in South Florida. I saw my first one in years today in my backyard. These cold-blooded reptiles are not native to the U.S. and a South Florida cold snap killed them all a few years ago. They're a pest for gardeners because they eat the blooms off the flowering plants, but they are prehistoric-looking as they bask in the sun on a golf course.

Whatever your point of view, it looks like they have returned. We have been having nights in the 40s lately so if it freezes, which is unlikely, the new population won't survive.

What do you think? Are you glad to see them back?
