The Green Creature

Banabear and I were lounging at the poolside yesterday morning when he noticed a green creature, about 12 inches in length, walking towards the dock. We do not know what it is but it probably belongs to the lizard family. Can you tell me what this creature is?

That is an iguana. They are found in the wild throughout South Florida (though some people also have them as pets) and can grow quite a bit larger than that. Sometimes they are more brown-ish than green. They can swim and also move very quickly when they want to.
