a clarification on
Los Condominios Iguanas

A reader of this blog wrote the following:

"But...I thought the iguanas got under the tejas so you were taking out the tejas to spite the iguanas."

Let me clarify what we did. Before we removed the tiles, they sat on a platform that served as the iguana condo floor. You can see what messy tenants they made.

We ripped off the floor and rebuilt the support using only lath. Then Fernando laid the tejas back on, anchoring them to the house with cement at the top. This is now what the underside looks like. No floor. No iguanas. No mess all over the patio.

There is no place for them to get into the tejas as they overlap and the space is much too small to accommodate them, even for a studio apartment. Good riddance!

Very nice looking! Do cats and dogs chase the iguanas, or do you care?

Unfortunately no. If they would ONLY chase them perhaps we could get rid of them. I don't know what hnatural predators are for iguanas. But so far, four days out, we have none around, except the one that lives in the drain pipe and we can live with him. Since his buddies have all moved away perhaps he will follow.
