An Iguana - 'Thala goya - Sinhalese, 'Udumbu - Tamil, Sri Lanka.

The head of an iguana seen in close-up. The Iguana is hunted and its flesh relished by some. The majority of Buddhists and Hindus would not eat it. It roams in the home gardens of Sri Lanka and is quite often run over by fast traffic on main roads, while it attempts its slow crossing of these roads. I took this picture in my home garden in Avissawella, Sri Lanka.
