Iguanas

47 species

Iguanas are herbivorous lizards that are native to tropical areas of Mexico, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean. They have dorsal spines across their back, a dewlap on the neck, sharp claws, a long whip-like tail, and a stocky, squat build. Most iguanas are arboreal and live in trees, but some species tend to be more terrestrial and prefer the ground. Like all reptiles, they rely on regular periods of basking under the sun to thermoregulate.
