In Mexican resorts (like Cancun) one could get Iguana served up as a stew. A specialty since times of Mayans. "Tastes like Chicken" would be the usual review. Number of recipes are available on the web.... from the usual spicy red-hot variety, to cooking in the typical Mayan chocolate mole sauce. In an old Australian movie "Walkabout", an aborigine-boy saves a couple of lost white children on the outback deserts -- feeds them grilled iguana. Lizards are life savers too. This one.. we must chalk it up to a lover's hyperbole. Spiders do it all the time, and they also drop a rope and rapel like a mountaineer.
