What a bunch of COMPLETE IGNORANTS! "These iguanas are at a zoo in Europe where they shouldnt be, they belong here, bla bla bla". And may I ask the same person WHO put Cyclura lewisi in danger in the first place other then humans who ocuppied the island that rigthfully belonged to them!? And who are this people for hating green iguanas at this level when themselfes werent supossed to live in Cayman islands at all in the first place. And Im EXTREMELLY sceptical that green iguanas are causing that sort of envoiromental damage, they occupy a different ecological niche then the native Cyclura, wild green iguanas live alongside a HUGE variety of diferent bird species, even sea birds in many locations and the damage they cause is completly irrelevant comparing to animals like cats. Oh but of corse those are furry and nobody wants to get rid of them dont they?! Green iguanas even live on small isolated islanets where they could teoricly denude them of all the vegetation, however that doesant happen at least to my knowlege. And the number of "precious" blue iguanas that were recolected for collections both before and after the proibition (even to Im not ok with breaking law as it gets us nowhere in our credibility) is TINY comparing with the number of them that were lost to so many other causes including run over by cars, loss of habitat and introduced predators. Yea but that nobody sees. And here in Europe as well as in the states people are desesperatly trying to build a future for these magnifycent animals for future generations to enjoy and these people who so far have probably done NOTHING for iguana conservation, acusse us of "stealing" natural heritage. Whitout further undue, francly they make me sick....
Back to our litle world, hey Extremosaurus how is it going? Been absent from the forum, many things going on but this made me so mad I just had to show up :D
