Think these invasive critters are cute or creepy? As you walk the grounds of Silver Sands you will notice these green guys peering at you from the trees and bushes, sometimes even chilling right out in the open. The green iguana are not native to the Cayman Islands and not having any predators, have become a pest. Although they are beautiful creatures to look at, they eat native vegetation, poop everywhere! and are threatening the native Blue Iguana's habitat. So much that there is a nation wide bounty on these guys now! The government has an ongoing Iguana Cull hoping that it will cut down on the population of these scaly pests.
