THINK LIZARDS: "Think conservation – NOT profit!" by 

“Think Lizards” A special non-profit series

NOTE: "This is Xena, she is one of John Binns’ rescue iguanas, she is in an OPEN cage and well treated. I used this image to show what happens to most lizard who become pets, they spend their life in a cage. The point is, it is so much better for them to spend their lives in the wild where they belong. Iguanas can not be returned to the wild once caught and brought over to the USA. They will always be wild, never domesticated.

When you buy a “THINK LIZARDS” card or print, the money from the product will be donated to the International Reptile Conservation Foundation
A little about the “THINK LIZARDS” card series:
I was blessed a few years back to visit and take photographs at Mr. John Binns’ home. Mr. Binns has over 50 Iguanas on the premises and in his care. They are fascinating to see. He has several breeds such as the Giant Green Iguana, a tropical iguana also known as the Common Green which are the iguanas most pet owners have. He also has Rock Iguanas and Rhino Iguanas, which can live to be 100 years old! He also had a hybrid of the rare Blue Rock Iguana, an endangered species. To learn more and find out how you can help conserve these beautiful great lizards visit This site is owned and operated by the International Reptile Conservation Foundation, a non-profit California corporation. All content within this website is {C} 1999-2006 John Binns.

If you love reptiles and would like to help the rare Blue Iguana as well as other iguanas visit and learn what you can do to support this worthy cause.
