An adult spiny-tailed iguana (Ctenosaura oedirhina) crouches on a branch in the Tropical Garden Reserve trying to be as inconspicuous as possible. I've noticed dozens of baby and juvenile spiny-tails the last few weeks. I'm guessing the eggs laid earlier in the summer hatched recently. See the Wikipedia page on this threatened species. At Paya Bay you'll see no cages with animals or birds that were brought in from elsewhere. If you practice awareness, however, you'll notice that the property is teeming with wildlife. Its own unique, interesting wildlife.
