I love animals of all sorts but when I travel I find that I get rather obsessed with insects and reptiles. It seems a shame that we are not awash with lizard in the Pacific Northwest and with all the spiders and abundant insect life here it seems ideally suited for them but alas it is not to be. So I have to get my fix when I travel to the tropics and Mexico, especially the Yucatan, is just alive with lizards. We saw monsters six feet long and tiny babies only a couple inches long. They were everywhere and some even posed for us, this guy we found in the ruins at Coba and he was quite content to sit while we took turns taking his picture. What a handsome little devil!
