In south FL. they are invasive and hunted for there meat by some, they say there pretty good table fare, I would try it, but than there is not anything that crawls, slithers or fly's that I wouldn't eat.
I bought them at a pet store, they are wild around the beach areas(we live in the mountains up here we have wild helmet iguanas(which are extremely hard to keep)) Any one else? Also “big” is 2+ feet adult sizeNice, I had a few in my life when I was young. They are fun. Do you get these wild over there or pet stores?
People here call them chickens of the treeomg you're kidding... iguana meat?! I mean I guess, if people eat snakes then why not big lizards...
I would love some skinks, but I don't think I could start a colony of live food
They don't taste fishy. The only thing I can compare it to is something most people also haven't eaten, Rattlesnake. The taste is also similar to frog legs but not chicken nor fish. 'Gator tail is good.Never ate gator that tasted fishy.

I love the Bearded Dragons. I see them in the pet store and they are always staring at what goes by and seeming very friendly. They get fairly big too.
Velma looks like we are the only ones with big lizards
Very surprising! Do you have any other reptiles? Whether they be big or small! Lol
Here’s some pictures of the newest skink who is officially in our possession now usually passed out asleep.

And here’s the pipsqueak that is always in hiding. I swear I only ever see him out and about when the cat is laying in front of his enclosure, they’re best buds.
