New taste sensation: Leguan

Amy said she had a new kind of food in her email from Saturday. Here is the excerpt from her email and two photos I found of the new food.

At tea break one day, one of the teachers asked me what you call a large lizard (like smaller than an alligator, but not by much.) Well, that sort of stumped me. The best I could come up with was Gilla Monster, which I think sounded a little like I was making things up, but someone produced a picture that looked remarkably like a Gilla Monster. Apparently it's called a Leguan (not so sure on the spelling of that) and it was what we were eating that day. It wasn't too bad. If they hadn't told me, I would have assumed that it was goat.

Leguan also known as the Cape Monitor
