The Cuban rock iguana is one largest of the West Indian rock iguanas (genus Cyclura), and one of the most endangered groups of lizards.
Spotted a "slaughter" of iguanas on "Iguana Island" in the Archipiélago de los Canarreos.
Can a Rock Iguana be beautiful? Yes indeed! Nice pic!!
Love the photo with the view of the sea (third from last). Wonderful spotting of yet another one of my favorites lizards, the iguana...
Thanks Laura, I think you're right. This guy is definitely a Cuban rock iguana (Cyclura nubila). Sad to hear their population numbers are threatened :(
Marine iguanas live only in the Galapagos, but I am afraid my knowledge of terrestrial reptiles is lacking! Possibly one of these guys? http://www.arkive.org/cayman-islands-gro... Cool spotting Peter :D
