Green Iguana

Iguana iguana

Description:

This iguana is about 6.5 feet long with a very thick body. Spikes and dewlap are orange in color while body is predominantly green. The extended dewlap is shown for courtship purposes or to deter a threat (probably me). Black and green striped tail.

Habitat:

Along an inland fresh water canal in western Boca Raton, FL

Notes:

This large iguana visits my backyard daily. The population of green iguanas of all sizes seems to be growing tremendously this year and there are typically 2 to 4 different iguanas a day visiting. On this day an Egyptian goose decided to run off this and another iguana. This marks my 100th Project Noah post!
