Saving An Iguana Four Miles Offshore

I was coming in from an offshore trip and I noticed a weird shaped object floating in the distance. All I could see were the multiple fins running down its back so I though it was some sort of palm frond, but it just didn't look right. I ended up stopping and noticed that it started swimming. It was pretty crazy seeing this guy so far out. I have seen plenty swimming around the islands, but never one that far out. Most likely, because of the King tides that are occurring it got caught in one of the swift outgoing tides and got pushed out to sea. I was just inside the reef so it was close to four miles from land. Most likely it would have died out there as the current that far out would most likely push it East with very little chance of coming back inshore. But you never know and it could be it's normal daily swim back and forth between Cuba and the US. Regardless, it was pretty cool see it trust me enough (versus dying of course) to swim toward the kayak and hop on. And then for it to just cruise along in the open water and then just as it saw the safety of the mangroves close by, it took a leap and swam to shore. Pretty cool.

Lol, it seems as if the iguana actually understood Steve when he asks “ does any of this look familiar to you “? And it did look like the iguana looked as if all he needed was a little ride - just take me up here to the ‘tree corner’ and I’ll hop off and take it from here

I really loved this video and it made my day. Someone posted it on Facebook, but it had been ripped , so I always do a search to try and find the person that originally posted it. I hope I have succeeded and this is the person that rescued this beautiful creature. Dodo also ripped it and put it on their website. I wish there was some way to stop this, as it prolific all over the web. For people to steal copyright of someones video for their own agenda and gain.

By the time he got there, the iguana realized a problem: He had no thumbs.

This iguana is probably in the top 1% of his species ...He was pushing overtime with his after work evening exercise so he could stay #1 alpha. The lazy couch potato iguanas are the ones putting the system out of whack.

This is one leader you won't find sitting in his tighty whities, tweeting in bed at 3am.
So pooped from a hard days work that he sleeps like a king.

we found 2 swimming towards land well over 7 miles once around 10 yrs ago on the gulf. when we came by they made a b line for our boat. they were extremely tired. friend ended up keeping them and they lived another 8 yrs b4 passing. they were fairly large which told us they were up in age when they found us. idk why they are out in the middle of the ocean. only thing I can think of is people catch them to.sell and some escape.

Were you down south near Key West or closer to Key Largo? I recently found an iguana hanging out on Carysfort Reef Lighthouse around 6 miles east of North Key Largo and couldn't help but wonder if it's the same one or like you said, maybe this isn't that strange to see. Here is a link to my observation on inaturalist.org where you can see it perched on the lighthouse: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/8321785

I had a pet iguana - it was so chill. The thing got so big my dad had to give it to a friend of his who collects reptiles. Oh shit. I think I just now realized he had the iguana put down... Shit I hope he didn't cook it up and serve it to me.
