What next for iguanas?

Iguana handbag?

Iguana tennis racket.

The prison has announced a new behind bars programme to use the skin of green iguanas to make handbags.

Not only is this providing a useful skill to those locked up, it is also helps rid the country of the pesky reptile.

Some restaurants are even turning green iguanas into a tasty gourmet dish and serving up a treat on people’s plates.

But what’s next?

If Cayman is overrun we need to get our thinking caps on and come up with more uses for this rogue reptile.

Fear no more – we’ve come up with a selection of forward thinking ideas to turn the green iguana into useful items.

Hats? No problem. Need a new tennis racket? We’ve got you covered. Or how about some stylish swimwear? Look no further. Earrings for a formal occasion perhaps? Sorted.
