sketch of animals

from w
I've yet to do drawings of our household pets - a black rabbit and a white guinea pig, but I once did this  picture of two quite different creatures that live in Fiji - an iguana and a mongoose, the latter not native to the place but brought in from Asia one time to rid the cane-fields of snakes.  Some people have made pets of mongoose but not our family. And about the iguana,  a special one is native to a small island off Vanua Levu but there's a great hoo-ha about large iguanas that came into Qamea Island in recent years somehow from America they say, and have become a real nuisance in Taveuni and other places. Some iguanas in Fiji are blue, others green.
