I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Darwin didn't think much of the iguanas in the Galapagos either:
It is extremely common on all the islands throughout the group, and lives exclusively on the rocky sea-beaches, being never found, at least I never saw one, even ten yards in-shore. It is a hideous-looking creature, of a dirty black colour, stupid, and sluggish in its movements.
But he never made it to Espanola. The iguanas here are unique in having this vivid red and green coloring during the rainy season, which begins shortly.
