Green Iguana Information:

General:

Green Iguanas are large, arboreal (tree dwelling) lizards of the new world primarily the Americas with most of them obtaining lengths of 4-5 feet in length they have been a controversial and interesting pet in the herptoculture trade for many years. I personally have worked with many Iguanas over the years in a professional atmosphere and as personal pets. In this gallery I hope to explore the newer information in regards to their care, husbandry, and responsibility of public awareness to the herptile hobby.

Basic Taxonomy:

Laurenti,1768. Iguanas from the genus of iguanidae. Typical range is from central Mexico to central south America, it is also occurring with some frequency in areas of Florida and Hawaii having been introduced recently and thriving considerably. The name Iguana is a Spanish translation of a Caribbean slang iwana. The green iguana is also listed as c.i.t.e.s. Appendix II which considers them to be threatened and permits are a requirement for exportation.

Bodily Characteristics:

A large lizard with adults commonly reaching sizes of 4'-5' sometimes in excess of 6' although quite rare. Iguanas tend to vary in weights depending on sex and overall health but extremely large males can be 18 lbs or more.
