    Couple more phone snaps, hope not too crappy, always look amazing on the phone screen lol.
    Lots of these guys around here.
    The first one is uncropped from a wide angle phone, got pretty close. Body about as thick as a guys forearm. Other one the same size. I'd say the concrete in 2nd is 4 to 5 inches tall. Saw bigger today from our inter hotel shuttle.

    I am going to have to see your forearm next to it to compare!
    Ha!
    Years ago in Cancuun, near Cancuun, at a tourist trap shopping mall- was a dog carrier under a tree in the shade.
    We sat next to it- peeked in and peeking back at us was an Ocelot.

    My forearm is too skinny lol. I was thinking more of a normal one :)

    The one by the concrete before he turned around like in the pic was doing an exaggerated nod when I got close. I was fairly sure I couldn't outrun him so didn't push it, he seemed to be giving me a warning

    We were in playa del Carmen today and saw a guy doing photos with people putting a tiger cub on their lap.

    If they are anything like beardies that exaggerated nod is probably him sizing you up as a potential mate...;)

    Yes, quicker off the mark than me I'm sure.

    Lol. That might be worse than him wanting to fight me :)
