I find green iguanas fascinating because they are such a contradiction. They have no cerebral cortex and so don't have the capacity for much memory or problem solving. They are known to try and walk on broken legs every morning because they literally forget that it was painful yesterday. Yet they seem to remember people and hold grudges against them, plot revenge by seeking out beds to poop on, and are terrific at figuring out climbing routes to get to the bananas I put on top of the fridge or the hanging plant by the window. It's amazing what reptiles can do with the brain power they have.
