The Squirrels of Quintana Roo

During our second walk through the Jungle on this Mexican Odyssey my wife noted that we had never seen a squirrel in the Yucatan. I think she is right although I am no expert. What you do see, almost as much as you would see squirrels, are Iguanas

They are not nearly as annoying. They don’t run around like crazy irritating every dog on the planet. They don’t throw crap at you when you are setting up a tent. They have mystique because thanks to Ray Harryhausen we think of them as dinosaurs and for some reason we all love dinosaurs.

If you follow this blog you have come to realize that I love pelicans. I photograph them whenever I can and even offer pelican apparel on my commercial site. Yet as many as I have photographed, I have still not captured the “money shot”. The shot that I visualize is a pelican rising out of the water with a fish in his mouth. I guess I have to keep taking pictures of them. This one was captured in a dive at sunrise from the beach at Laguna Mar in Cancun.

I am The Iguana!

I can not see an iguana without thinking of the character that Tim Kazurinsky created on Saturday Night Live in the 1980’s. There are Iguanas all over Mexico. We had one near our condo which we named Iggy Pop for some unknown reason. We found this gal in ruins of Tulum Mexico. I found out that the females are smooth like this and the males have spikes along their spine.
