Eastern Casquehead Iguana

Laemanctus Longipes

Description:

Photo take at my backyard, this juvenile one is moving on a plant about 15 cm long beautiful stripes on the face. It can reach 70 cm in total length, two thirds of which is a thin tail. Rather slow, it sits on trees and bushes above water courses, licking water drops on leaves and catching insects that walk nearby.

Habitat:

They are native of México, Panama, Belize, northwestern Colombia and Costa Rica, but have been introduced in U.S.
