Green Iguana

Iguana iguana


The green iguana is a large lizard and is probably the largest species in the iguana family.


Seen on a small island that is quite dry. A herbivore, it has adapted significantly with regard to locomotion and osmoregulation as a result of its diet. It grows to 1.5 meters (4.9 ft) in length from head to tail, although a few specimens have grown more than 2 metres (6.6 ft) with bodyweights upward of 20 pounds (9.1 kg).
