Iguana selfie, as requested by Helen Webber.
One of the one year old iguana hatchlings. This afternoon we caught them all for measurement and re-habiting in cages based on size.
Clever girl… They remind me of velociraptors.
Bite from a big one.
Tarantula. Not poisonous, but apparently also not pleasant to stand on. A crunch then explosion under your foot as its abdomen explodes.
Today we fed iguanas early in the morning, then I was tasked with chopping down some annoying reeds with a machete. After that me and another volunteer went and caught crabs down by the beach – not an easy task. After lunch, which was brought up from the town, we got working on measuring the iguanas, collecting termite nests and building a new t-shirt and postcard building.
