Photographer, Andrew Snyder, caught this young Iguana sunning on the bank of the Burro Burro River. In the Rupununi, Iguanas lay their eggs in the dry season on exposed sandbanks along the rivers and their eggs and meat are food resources for predators such as salipenter (Tegu lizard), hawks, vultures, and humans. As many farmers know, Iguanas are vegetarians; they have a preference for young leaves but are also important seed dispersers.
