Trapping Tips For Invasive Iguanas

I am often asked about trapping iguanas as a means of removal. I have found that while this is an excellent “thought” it rarely provides consistent results.

Marco Island Iguana Tales – Owl vs. Iguana

I recently received two urgent MI resident calls to intercede in a running fight between a Burrowing Owl trying to protect its nest and eggs from a determined Iguana, who can physically over-power one of our favorite Owls friends. They simply barge in to eat their eggs and defile their home burrow

Weird Marco Island Iguana Tales – Eating Your Iguana.

l heard that Iguanas are edible, in fact, they have the nickname of “Chicken of the Tree”.  While that may be a fact, who among us has truthfully eaten an actual Iguana?
