Boca Grande Iguanas

10,000 iguanas call Boca Grande home

With homes routinely selling for over $1 million, Boca Grande tops the charts for exclusivity in SW Florida. Home to the areas best tarpon fishing and art galleries, Boca Grande is home to an estimated 10,000 iguanas.

This army of non-native reptiles roams the island eating and burrowing anything and everything that stand in its way. The iguanas are causing havoc with the environment, destroying fragile dunes and eating the eggs of gopher tortoises. A plan to eradicate the inguanas is in development.
