Somehow this has devolved into a recipe thread...

Give the locals in Belize a half of a 55 gal. drum, some coconut husks to burn and they'll cook you up some good Bamboo Chicken.
There is more than one species. Some of them are seriously endangered

Yep, these guys need to be forced to eat their way thru the green iguana population around the Deerfield boat ramp. I have seen some 5 foot green monsters in that area that surprised the heck out of me during pre-dawn launches and going thru the canals to the ICW and out Boca inlet.
It never ceases to amaze me how people make it so easy for prosecutors to find evidence when dipsticks like this plaster their nefarious deeds on the internet with photo's. But I guess we are in the age of Paris Hilton, where you tape yourself giving air-starts and the next thing you know some club owner is packing you on a G IV to Japan and paying you 100k to party at a new "hot spot". What ever happened to the Texas axiom of the 3 'S'? Shoot it, Shovel it, Shut up. (jk)
I did see a cooking show on the tube once about curried iguana down island one time that made it look pretty good, of course the guy also made Bonito look good too.

The iguana(s) that were grilled are engangered. They are a special species. We all like a good joke but the "bamboo chicken" etc. comments are ignorant and out of place. Comparing an Exuma cay iguana to one from Grenada or Belize is like comparing the Steelers to the 2007 Dolphins (since you are from Florida) or the 2008 Lions. To the person concerned about fuel, please start a fuel oriented thread.

Heh! Looks like this one's reached the end of it's rope.

It was doing well for a while. Some good points were made, and the topic served to alert all of us that you can't just go to another country and begin harvesting whatever looks tasty. Cruisers (and charterers) need to be aware of the local laws and customs with regard to the flora and fauna.

So, thanks, Christian, for bringing it to our attention.
