This iguana is the city’s most famous reptilian Muni customer. He’s even made national news! If you’re not acquainted with Skippy the Iguana, you should be. He’s a full-on service animal for Cosmie Silfa, pictured.
From a 2011 Wall Street Journal (for real) report:
“He cradles him like a baby, a big scary baby,” says Roy Mair, who works the front desk of the subsidized housing unit where Mr. Silfa lives. Mr. Silfa says what qualifies Skippy as a service animal is a letter from the psychiatrist who has been treating Mr. Silfa for depression. The letter says Skippy “helps him to maintain a stable mood.”

I would love to meet Skippy someday myself, if he’s not too busy being bigtime. He seems like a real gem, and he’s welcome on my Muni any day of the week.
