Why on "earth" would Nature create such an amazing mosaic of color and geometry on a LIZARD? What was SHE thinking?

Beautiful...with the possible exception of that goofy expression and curled tongue. #10452099

Description

This fellow calls the West Palm Beach Zoo his home even though he's totally unrestricted in his movements. He wanders the grounds as he pleases. Here he's atop a Handrail made of a telephone pole ( nice for scale) which is part of a foot bridge over part of the South American Exhibit.
Approximately 8 feet long, half of it tail. He is the UNQUESTIONABLY the Largest Iguana I have ever seen or heard of. From the Huge Claws to the amazing assortment of colors in his scale he is like eye candy for the camera.


Exif: F Number: 9, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/200 seconds, Flash: fired, compulsory flash mode, return light detected, ISO: 800, White balance: Manual white balance, FocalLength: 85.00 mm, Model: NIKON D90
