Iguana delicatissima

The Lesser Antillean iguana is a large arboreal lizard endemic to the Lesser Antilles. It is one of three species of lizard of the genus Iguana and is in severe decline due to habitat destruction, introduced feral predators, hunting, and hybridization with its introduced sister species, the green iguana . Successful captive breeding of this species has been limited to only two instances, as most captive-laid eggs tend to be infertile. Other common names for it are Lesser Antillean green iguana or West Indian iguana.
