We had an awesome time in Key West, Florida! It was our last hoorah before baby number two makes his entrance into the world! They had some really neat wildlife including this large reptile. The green iguana is NOT native to Florida. They came to Florida from the exotic animal trade. People would purchase iguanas as pets and not be able to maintain them. Their owners would then let the iguanas go into the wild where they flourished thanks to Florida's tropical environment.
