Looks like a very evil smile! :D
Great capture!

If I’m close enough to tell he’s smiling then I think I’m too close! That’s where I’d be grateful for a nice zoom lens.

Were you aware that iguanas have a 3rd semi-developed eye on the top of their head?

I can’t look at iguanas without thinking of Selma’s pet from The Simpsons.

This iguana is so ugly that it makes it even beautiful :D

Aww, I think he’s cute! I love it when animals look like they’re smiling! :)

One of most photogenic Iguana I ever seen. Nice capture matt.

Yellow Iguana? It looks so strange
