When one thinks of standard lizards, it is not long before one comes to the iguana.


Oh man, it’s here already.

It arrived so much sooner than I expected. I expected it soon. Just not that soon.

Anyway, the iguana embodies pretty much everything that one associates with lizards as a group, and adds a lot of weird bumps into the mix.

Special powers

Like the brine shrimp, the iguana also boasts a psychic third eye. Its psychic powers, however, are typically more telekinetic in nature. The iguana can move rocks of middling size, sticks, children’s clothing, Magic-brand eight-balls, etcetera.*


The iguana has a dewlap, which is a nice way of saying it’s fat.

Number of legs



Some people keep iguanas as pets. The iguana mostly falls in line, but it doesn’t really do anything. It is also a little off-beat via not being a cat or a dog, so you have to explain why you went with it of all things. And to take this category more literally, how much joy can you really get from petting it?

I don’t ask these questions to cast aspersions on you, potential iguana-owner. I ask them because they are the very questions you need to ask yourself before you commit to being the iguana guy.

Notable Iguana Guys

  • Johnny Depp (actor)
  • Martin van Buren (president)
  • Bret Michaels (musician)
  • Hugo Chavez (performance artist)
  • Nicola Tesla (inventor)
  • David Bowie (Nicola Tesla)
  • Jeff Daniels (designer of The Grid)
  • Bad “Port of Call New Orleans” Lieutenant (lieutenant)

What if it fought a bear?

The bear would eat a big chunk of iguana and immediately regret it. Because: gross.

Is it noble?


Final rating

Okay, now I will cast aspersions on you, iguana-owner.**





*Despite what certain Muppets will assert about telekinesis, size matter does.

**Except you, David Bowie. We’ll always be friends.
