One of the curious things about Panama (and in a similar way with Costa Rica) is that iguanas are everywhere. Though they are quite harmless (unless you stupidly provoke them), they are a common site in rocky beaches, outside your hut, in your swimming pool and sometimes they are in your plate for dinner. They can be unnerving at first when you see them scurrying around. But nowadays, I’m glad that I have them around than a black sewer rat.

If you’re thinking that they’d sneak up on you while you’re sleeping and chomp off a portion of your face, you’re probably watching too many schlocky horror movies. The iguana only eats flowers, fruits and leaves. Yup, they’re as vegetarian as Meatloaf. They are one of the few species of land lizards who subsists on vegetation as a source of food.

Iguanas generally roam around the lush green beaches to either mate, find vegetation or when in the open, to heat themselves up. Reptiles are supposedly cold-blooded, right? But I frequently see these curious creatures worshipping the sun, like they’re getting a tan.

Iguanas are generally quiet but inquisitive. But don’t be threatened by them. They’re usually there to observe and see if there’s food in your area. They will only show aggression when you threaten them.

But another strange fact is iguanas react aggressively towards women having their periods. Maybe because it’s the pheromones that women supposedly emit that drives them crazy. Sometimes, They do tend to chase females around. I’m not kidding!

The best thing to do in this situation is to not aggravate him by attacking it. A friend told me that iguanas suddenly become docile if you throw a small stuffed toy or those rubber ones. And when you confront it, do it in front and don’t sneak behind it. Even whispering or talking in a soothing tone helps.
