Iguana Sp

This monster was approximately a metre long and seeing the size of its jaws we gave it a wide berth.  It was seen close to some houses in the Pinares De Mayari area and it has been suggested that it may be someone's free ranging pet!

Lizard Sp

This fairly small lizard was seen in the hilltops above the hotel El Salton.

If anyone can identify please let me know. Jim Rose

In the cloud forest at Pinares De Mayari, airplants such as this were everywhere and some trees were completely covered.
