This is Iggy the iguana. She's over 4 ft long, and likes to sun herself on this palm tree. We live in the Florida Keys (zone 11) but feel like we're in Jurassic Park! They're invasive and prolific here, eating plants, flowers, and digging into seawall structures. They do a lot of damage. Not cute!

Javelina/Pecccary plural: Peccaries.
These are the most aggravating things around here. They dig up cactus and eat the roots..and most other flowers too. They are sometimes called Skunk Pig....because they have such a bad odor. Their eyesight is not great but, they have good hearing.

White-tailed deer, a native species that has become invasive in urban areas. Protected from being hunted, they boldly browse with impunity, decimating gardens, cleaning out bird feeders, and generally making pests of themselves.

White-tailed deer with newborn fawn. In the woods, where they belong, they're lovely creatures. When they invade your yard and garden and eat everything in sight, they're pests. They have become invasive in urban settings.

Grey Squirrell, Sciurus carolinensis, is one of the most successful invaders ever in the UK, probably only surpassed by the Brown Rat in terms of its almost total success in colonising a non native environment.
