Great ideas in natural selection: pink iguana species discovered
He's an iguana. He's pink. What's not to love? And how long till Paris Hilton snaps one of these up? You KNOW they'd look better with a diamond collar than a plain ol' green iguana.
Pink iguanas or "sparkle lizards," as I believe the scientific community must now be required to call them, were actually discovered in 1986, but was only recently declared to be its own heartwarming species. They live, where else!, in the Galapagos.
