Have you noticed that at this time of year, people celebrate a mid-March holiday by wearing green clothes, hanging green decorations, and eating green foods and drinking green beer? They must be celebrating Green iguana Day!
Hello, I’m Curtis Curly-tail of Warderick Wells Cay, in the Exumas of the Bahamas.
I’m simply delighted that Lyric Power Publishing asked me to write some guest posts for their website. You see, I kind of owe them for making me somewhat famous. I really get to show off my perfect curly tail over at my You Tube Channel!
Let me start by introducing myself and my species. I am a member of the Leiocephalus carinatusspecies. We are found in the Bahamas, Cuba and on the Cayman Islands. I am planning a trip to visit the Lime Lizard Lads on the Cayman Islands, who are the exact same species as me. Isn’t that incredible? What is curious is that the Bahamas has four other species of Curly-tail lizards, but my species is the only one to travel to the Cayman Islands.
We all like to live along the coast in dry areas. We’re called xerophilic or arid-loving. We live on the ground among rocks, shrubs and even pines, but my favorite spot is along the beach. I’ve noticed humans like the beach, too. Maybe I’ll see you there! And, If you’d like to join me on my wild adventures, the Curtis curly-tail series is available here.
Living on a Caribbean island can be wonderful, but it is also rather isolating. Just as we humans enjoy having visitors, Curtis Curly-tail enjoyed seeing people come ashore from their boats. When he watched them leave again, Curtis wondered where they had come from and where they were going.
One day the curious and courageous little guy decided to find out for himself. He crept into a sneaker and traveled to the big city, delighting in the many sights and sounds a small cay doesn’t have. Eventually, though, Curtis wanted to go home. It didn’t take him long to realize that getting onto a tourist boat from his beach was much easier than catching a ride home would be. He would have to get on the right boat and he had no idea how he would cross the water between the boat and his beach.
Thanks for stopping by Tails, Tales and Adventures, Oh, My!
