Juvenile. invasive species in South Florida
I'm still leaning more towards Green because of the way the tail looks and the coloration of the top of the head.
Hi, I've been back and forth on this iguana ID. I asked the folks at the Crandon Nature Center and they said that both species are found in the park and that juvenile Green iguanas (Iguana iguana) are all green. Whereas the spiny-tailed (Ctenosaura similis) are not. Let me know what you think.Below is a link with some info.http://www.bio.miami.edu/pze/iguanas.htm...
I agree. It looks more like a green iguana.
By the area and the predominance of iguanas in south Florida, more than likely it is a juvenile green iguana-the tail stripes are the giveaway.
the feet indicates a lizard
That looks more like a young iguana to me than a green anole.
