Re: Fighting iguanas photo



Stunning! 

The text mentions that the lizards can detect aerial predators with the
"parietal eye." I had thought that the opening and lens were to monitor
light for detecting changes in the seasons, or some other very basic use.
Can it actually "see" approaching objects?
