    Iguana's okay?

    Read this in the Dispatch this morning. I was amused by the guy with the dinosaur marionette scaring people, but I'm not excited about running into a large lizard when I'm at the beach. I'm curious to hear other opinions.



    OCEAN CITY — After receiving some odd complaints about a man and his reptile on the Ocean City Boardwalk, the City Council will now be debating at a future work session the definition of domesticated versus undomesticated animals, and what types of animals are allowed to be walking the resort’s streets.

    Councilwoman Margaret Pillas brought up a complaint that she had received about a gentleman walking his large iguana on the Ocean City Boardwalk and as a result, scaring some pedestrians.

    Iguanas are gentile creature albeit ugly as sin.

    Some parts of of Mexico and Central America they are allowed to roam free in homes,stores,etc. beacause they're great exterminators.

    Apparently some of the complaints were that this person was saying things like "want to pet my iguana?" to people passing by. lol

    FYI: If anyone here is on Facebook, there is an OC Cruise In Facebook Page and they have TONS of pictures from the last 20 years of Ocean City including Boardwalk Elvis, Cadillac Jacks, and the old wild mouse ride. The name of the page is Cruisin OC.
