Iguanas are on the Menu Here in Puerto Rico

We see very large iguanas here all the time, and often, unfortunately, as road kill on the freeway. They used to be a food item here and that idea is making a comeback.

I know people who say that iguana meat is very good, but so far have I resisted the temptation to try it myself. The large tails are supposed to be the main part of the feast.

They look too ugly to eat, but I guess turkeys aren't winning any beauty contests either.

They may end up on a plate here, but at least that would be better than the condition I see them in on our roadways.
