In the sun with a green iguana
This morning, my husband noticed my winter paleness, and I, determined to undo that, went out in the sun a little after midday. I walked over to the park next door surrounded by lots of sunshine and low humidity. The park was deserted as it normally is that time of day. The only others there were the birds, which I've seen before, and to my great surprise one I'd never seen before around here, a stunning, green, tropical iguana. Looking up a good, easy-to-read link for this posting, I discovered why the iguana was in the sun w. me, s/he is cold-blooded and derives all heat from basking in the sun. Now, you know that too (in case you didn't before).
