The scientific name of the green iguana is Iguana iguana. Please insert this into the space reserved for scientific name (while editing) so that your spotting is marked as identified in the Project Noah spotting database. Thanks

Yeah. It does seem to have the face of an Iguana. And the claws. If you saw it had a really long tail, it probably is.
