This Iguana is a smaller one and measures about 10" long. it was spotted eating Hibiscus
Tropical dry forest in NW Costa Rica 9 weeks into the rainy season.
Thanks for the update, Larry. I commented because the common name was listed as "green iguana," leading me to think you knew the identity and just hadn't completed the spotting. I'm just going through a lot of old spottings, trying to get known organisms into the database. Thanks again.
This is a juvenile and quite small. I haven't yet had confirmation through any means weather this is a green or spiny backed. Once I have absolute proof I shall update the species information. Gracias Andres, pero todavia no estoy segura que es la especie que menciones
Hi there. Since you know the identity of your spotting, please go ahead and edit it and add the scientific name. That will enter it into the database and remove it from the "unidentified" list. Thanks!
