Green Iguana

Iguana iguana


Its a large, arboreal herbivorous species of lizard of the genus Iguana native to Central and South America.


Found this juvenile in a country house near my hometown.


Even when wild Iguanas are very popular around warm cities in Colombia, some of them are victims of the illegal pet trade.
