They loose the blue markings when grow.
Great photo! It would be great if you added the spotting to the "Reptiles of Costa Rica" mission:http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/1589...
I would also say young male iguana, although females might be a little bit more colorful at the beginning.
Thanks a lot bayucca, I was almost sure on Green iguana but this is the first juvenile I see, so I wasn't sure. BTW, I think this is a male (due to the big and ornamented gular fold), am I right? Or does it look the same in females?
Iguana iguana, juvenile. Sometimes they are also called Blue Diamond Iguana. Many juveniles have some nice blue, which they loose again when growing.http://www.vivanatura.org/Iguana%20iguan...http://i49.photobucket.com/albums/f282/W...http://lapassiondesreptiles.forumactif.c...
