Monitor Lizards on the Road

The bus ahead screeches to a halt, and we swerve into a ditch.

“Iguana,” says our tuktuk driver with a grunt.

I’ve never seen an iguana like this. This was more like a dinosaur or a dragon. It could probably eat a small child. (Komodo Dragons maybe used to eat pigmy elephants.)

“Can you eat it,” I asked.

“No! Very bad. In the jungle, they eat. But not here.”

Looked tasty to me!
