    Iguanas everywhere in Costa Rica, when I worked for D&PL one the guys that worked for us and lived there, put in a request for air rifles to shoot them the gin and delinter. He ate them.

    Whoa, haha, they were stating on the show that it's illegal to eat them or sell meat local. Can ship , as long as off island. ( they did show some being cooked with no one in pic:cool:).
    Didn't catch a reason why.

    guy on ar15.com used to post pics of the ones he hunted in FL. 4-6' monsters. they are invasive in FL so no limit :) I saw a story that the cold weather in FL this year had them falling dead out the trees.

    hmm I can't see them tunneling (but i'm no expert). the ones that froze and fell out of the trees could have survived under ground, or even under debris.

    They dig deep borrows with many tunnels for the females to lay eggs in.

    yeah they'll tunnel like a nutria in the soft sands. Major erosion.

    someone read up on the legalities :) should be ok to travel and hunt with air rifles. also should be good shooting all invasive species! tegu lizards are also a problem, not to mention Burmese and African rock pythons !!

    catching a wild born python is on my bucket list. florida is ok with it as long as you don't turn any loose :)
