Fun in the sun with Elvis the iguana


Photographer Jim Grant captured some awesome photos of Elvis the 5-foot iguana having a beach day in San Diego, California. Elvis' owner, Mike McGuire has had him for many years and enjoys taking Elvis for a little swim. "He walks with Elvis on his shoulders and throws him into 4-feet deep water. Elvis then surfs back to shore and heads up the beach. People love the show, even the women but kids especially, they are fascinated by the beautifully colored reptile."


Grant isn't the only iReporter who has spotted charistmatic animals. Have you encountered any in your travels or even around town? Send us your photos.

Where do they got all these Iguanas from? Fun in the beach is nice but ist with iguanas why not other fun excitements.

Good point jbilindad. I prefer to have my fun in the beach with other excitements as well.
