On the way back from Bosque Santa Lúcia today we made a stop at the São Camilo Hospital (alias Maternidade Hospital) for Áurea to see a patient. It was about 3:00 in the afternoon and hotter than Hates, so I parked the car inside the hospital compound under a shady mango tree. I told Daniel that it was common to see iguanas munching on fallen mangoes around here. I didn't see any from inside the car, so I got out to have a look. I didn't take more than four steps before spotting this very large iguana resting on one of the lower limbs of the mango tree. It tried to put some distance between us but Daniel got some photographs before it disappeared up the tree.
