The iguana is an arboreal species, which means it lives in trees. It's not primarily an aquatic creature, however you can see it's got quite an adept swimming stroke. The motion is a side-to-side ripple that goes along the body and tail, regardless of the feet. It's quite fast. If the water was murky there'd be not much hope of tracking it, but in the crystal clear swimming pool it's quite easy to see. The question is more a matter of How to get the lizard out of the swimming pool?! Anyone fancy going in after it?
