Episode 97: Lizard Patrol

Over the course of thirty years, the Island of Boca Grande in Florida went from having zero Iguanas to over 10 thousand. This invasive species was making it impossible for native plants and animals to survive. The island finally decided to do something about it, they called George Cera. We went on trip around the highland with this hired gun… and of course we ate some lizard.

  1.  Awesome! One of my favorite recent episodes. Did he elaborate any more about how development has wrecked the island?

    They are having the same problem in Puerto Rico.  I went 12 years ago and the stray iguanas were “cute.”  I went 6 years ago and they were a “nuisance.”  I went in February and they are EVERYWHERE.

    Unfortunately, the Bible strictly forbids the consumption of lizards of any kind (all reptiles are forbidden but it specifies geckos) so most Christians, Jews, and Muslims would not be allowed to help with the management/eating of this invasive species if they want to get into Paradise or Heaven (where I assume, there are no lizards).
