Just days ago Cayman 27 reported on the increasing frequency of Sister Islands Rock Iguana deaths under the wheels of cars.

One of Little Cayman’s best known iguanas, one of about 2,000 on the island was found dead in a carpark Thursday (2 June)

Stumpy, who earned his moniker by virtue of his truncated tail, was a fixture at Little Cayman Beach Resort.

Staff members told Cayman 27 he was a favorite of guests, known for his happy head pumps and his tendency to not get out of the way of the laundry carts.

It’s suspected Stumpy was the victim of careless driving.

Around 100 of these iguanas are killed in an average year on Little Cayman, according to National Trust volunteer Mike Vallee.
