    He's cool!! I love all my leezard neighbors, too. Although I wish I didn't have to spend my day running like a maniac through my yard, screaming, "DROP IT!!!" at my curious kitties. They just like to play, and sometimes with the big guys, similar to yours... :rolleyes:

    Roy, I'm not sure what he is, but he's definately not a blue tongue. They look like this

    He's a shingleback actually but the tongue is very blue. I think its a state name difference mainly.

    LOL! I love you, Piggy.

    I wonder, wouldn't it dry out or are they just greasy by nature?

    I think the Aborigines chuck em under some hot coals and after a while they drag em out and share em around. Bags not getting a Drum Stick.:rolleyes:

    Iguanas are rapidly taking over South Florida. I need to pay attention to these "how to cook" threads, I think.

    They sure have teeny tiny feet. I don't think I could eat that. It's sorta scary looking as far as a foodstuff goes.

    I had a single bite of a rattlesnake once.
    Tasted like chicken.
    He was fresh too.
    But, didn't get a bite out of me!
    :D
