Last year while visiting
in Argentina, I saw lots of green. The main attraction for me in planning for this trip was seeing Iguazú Falls , but I also found myself enjoying the park itself. Iguazú
Throughout the park, there is a wide variety of fauna and animals in this jungle environment. I saw several species of birds, butterflies, fish and reptiles. I even saw a coati which was really cool (video to come).
I almost missed this curious resident because of his coloring. I'm a big baby when it comes to lizards or anykind of reptile so initially this was as close as I was willing to get. But being a big fan of fellow PhotoHunter YTSL's hiking photos featured in her blog, Webs of Significance . . .
I manage to summon up enough courage (and my zoom lens) to get a close-up shot of my curious friend. I swear, it was almost as if he was posing. He stood still for the longest time while a group of us snapped away! :)
Throughout the park there are numerous signs providing information and directions to visitors. Here's one warning visitors to walk only on the path. I found it amusing.
Now, I've seen snakes on my local hikes at home, but none which raised its head like the one pictured here. Yikes!
