Green Iguana Exhibit-San Ignacio

I recently did the Iguana tour at the San Ignacio Hotel and it was amazing. Unfortunately Iguanas are threatened here because their eggs are considered a delicacy. The hotel funds a program to go out and collect iguana eggs before they are taken for food by people. Once the little ones hatch they are cared for by a dedicated team of animal lovers for about two years until they are big enough to release back into the wild. This program is amazing and I only wish their were more like it here in Belize.

this little guy just hatched out a half an hour before I arrived!

salad bar is open!
