Meet Gertrude, our resident iguana. This is a picture of a young iguana who adopted us last year. She is incredibly colorful with her vivid shades of lime green. She stops by every day by the pool and delivers a "poo" present, which of course, I get to clean up when in residence. Even though Hurricane Omar hit us straight on, Gertrude survived and continues to grow and flourish in her Caribbean retreat. Unlike the typical pets in Lakewood, CO, Gertrude has full reign of our yard....as an endangered species, we anticipate she will be a part of household for a very long time.
