Is there something going on with the Iguanas on the island? I had two on my porch and yard yesterday, which I have never had before, and I saw two running on the streets in C'sted. Is it mating season or something?

We've seen more too. I think it must be mating season.

I asked this question a year or two ago during what looked like an "iguana swarming season" 🙂

Someone who seemed to know a lot about iguanas said that when it is dry they tend to move around more, perhaps looking for water (if I remember the answer correctly...)

definitely post-mating season: I have seen many gravid female iguanas around Antilles School (large abdomen - full of eggs), and they are burrowing here and there to bury their eggs soon. I think they were mating a couple of weeks to maybe a month ago.

I am only seeing little ones but there seems to be more than usual. What I am seeing is a lot of mongoose. Usually they don't come in the yard at least not in the daytime.

I believe that this year I have seen more iguana than in the past four or five spring/summers. I am not sure what it is about, but the population does seem to be on the rise. I rather like that. Maybe they learned over time how to survive the mongoose'dem.
