Hi there. I've gone ahead and have updated the common and scientific names for you. :-)

It's a running joke that they call the iguanas in puerto vallarta the Three eyed Iguanas. But all iguanas have the spot on top of their heads that they call the 3rd eye. It is their belief that it is to help them detect hawks.
