    Long distance communications with large Igauna across canal.
    I had a very large Igauna dive into a canal,with his smaller buddy.
    This Iguana was about 5 feet his buddy about 3 foot,they swam
    on top of the water. In warmer weather they swim deep to avoid
    detection. The largest Igauna chilled out in the sun,I walked away
    so he could not see me,he headed higher up the tree confirming
    communication of sight. When I first started the project,I could
    walk up close because people thought they were cute until they
    started eating all there plants and flowers.Now that they know that I
    will catch them,they will dive into the water with a running start.So I am working
    on some new ways to keep them away. They have Invaded this preserve
    so they will be around for along time. But I have had great sucess In changing
    there habits. There (do) when dried out this shows beatles and very small crabs,
    this shows that there less grass Is being eaten by them. Showing
    this stuff Is proof of sucess to the people that Is looking for results.
    Have expanded the project based on results. When I started this project
    I never dreamed of having this much sucess. I have learned a lot science
    about Igaunas that Is not In the books,some things may be new. I will wait for
    more results before posting all my Information,I want to wait for this post
    to get more Interest To disclose more findings. Bird siteings Kingfisher,
    Blue heron,White Ibis,green heron,Gaint White heron,Night Crown heron,Osprey,
    White Heron, Red Shouldered hawk.

    I'd submit that you are indeed the invader. My philosophy is, if you go and build your home where the iguanas live, and plant flowers there that the iguanas eat, then that is minimal compensation for your bulldozing down their natural habitat.

    Now, my suggestion would be, stop terrorizing them and either gleefully feed the iguanas and nurture them to the extent that you can to abate the damage you have done, or pick up and leave and give them back their ancestral lands.

    An unknown percentage of people agree with you,
    only the people who enjoy nature and plants and flowers
    seek to abate the problem. The unknown percentage
    has no clue to the method of communication with the wild.
    The same go with your polar bears,they are native not
    exotic like the Igaunas.Your climate allows you to chill out and
    avoid all the pest that love year round warm climates.
    The polar bear strikes terror In the mind of lots of people.
    They are at the top of the list for great animals and I enjoy
    all the footage I see of them,they are Invaded to be tagged
    by the park services. Soon you and I will tagged to If not already.

    The bears and iguanas go in that water.

    The iguanas are not native to Florida though, but it is a perfect habitat for them.

    Perfect place for my project,but Texas or bust for my Fire Ant Project.
    The hold up was the shuttle break up over Texas and the hurricanes and
    all the people movement.The officals were every where looking for bodies parts for dna
    no time to put up with researchers running around,no time to listen to our cause.
    Texas can be a tough state with law enforcement did not want to answer that
    question are you looking for body parts.
