668 THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE JAUNTY SAILBOATS PENETRATE THE ISLAND LABYRINTH OF THE AMAZON DELTA The author, returning from Soure, Maraj6 Island, to Belem (Para), in a boat similar to these, was caught in a violent squall and suffered terribly from seasickness. So mighty a volume of water does the Amazon pour into the ocean at the northeastern tip of the island that sailors along the coast at that point may fill their drinking-water casks at sea. Photographs by Hugh B. Cott MARAJO'S VERSATILE IGUANA EYES THE WORLD COMPLACENTLY Happy on land, in water or up a tree, this lizard subsists chiefly on vegetation, varying its diet with an occasional bird or small mammal. Although it may grow to a length of more than five feet. it is inoffensive. Properly cooked, the iguana tastes like chicken, although not so tender.
