What’s the best way to get rid of invasive critters? Eat them, of course!

Over the course of 30 years, the island of Boca Grande in Florida went from having zero iguanas to over 10,000. This invasive species was making it impossible for native plants and animals to survive, so the island’s residents finally decided to do something about it, and called in George Cera. In this video we go on a trip around the island with Cera that culminates in an impromptu iguana tasting.
