Just wanted to share a little story
I wanted to share an animal rescue from yesterday with you guys.
Our property is loaded with iguanas...LOADED. Our property is also fenced all the way around as we are on a deep ocean canal area and I have 2 kids. Anyway, an iguana was running from the girls 2 days ago ( as they do) and tried to run THROUGH the fence ( chainlength) and got stuck. She was floundering around and it just looked awful! I told the girls to leave the area and she would then calm down and figure out how to get out (overestimating the reptilian brain...)
Yesterday we were out playing, and I see that the iguana IS STILL STUCK! I was sick thinking it died there and I never came back to check on it. My 3 year old starts screaming that it is still alive , so I called a Herp friend to come help me unstick it.
While we were balancing on the sea wall, cutting the fence to free the poor thing, my neighbors are screaming:EAT 'EM - THEY TASTE LIKE CHICKEN!
: ( side note, many down here DO eat them...but that is not the point...)
I was very proud that my kids helped me give the little lady (3 feet long) fresh picked cherries and water, and return her to her habitat ( my yard)...
On the family note, my dad tried to talk me into seeing his new "guru" yesterday...who is a Mercola nut and my father is now convinced I am killing myself and my kids through my veg diet.
In the past they basically ignored my diet ..
