Iggy was discovered in October of 1991 in the vegetable garden of a staff member living in the Back Bay section of Boston. Since then, he has been an invaluable member of the MIT network operations group, providing 24-hour staffing of our NOC as well as managing to find time for publications in Scientific American (November 1994, pg. 103) and Newsweek(January 30, 1995, pg. 62). The original network iguana, Iggy can be seen here with Internet notables Vint Cerf and Dave Clark.
Here In the photo below, Iggy had been with us for just about a year. On the left is David Hogarth who found Iggy nibbling on his string bean plants. Holding Iggy is Ron Hoffmann who helped bring Iggy to his new home at MIT.

In his time here, Iggy has amassed much knowledge of network management. So for your edification, here is the official "Iggy Sez" list!
What's Iggy up to now? To be honest, he's not the most active critter, so updating this picture every 15 minutes may be a bit of overkill!
Here's the Ig hard at work, monitoring traffic in the NOC.
