Why All the Hate?

Here is the lesser known Galapagos land iguana (lesser in part because the marine iguana has hogged all of the attention). Not even Darwin cared much for them:

"...they are ugly animals, of a yellowish orange beneath, and of a brownish-red colour above: from their low facial angle they have a singularly stupid appearance."

True, they are ugly enough, but why all the hate people? It's just a lizard after all.

Thanks for the photo,
