Common Iguana

About Common Iguana

The Common Iguana is a very popular pet. They may appear a bit fearsome, but they are gentle vegetarian reptiles. Even though they are large lizards, iguanas are sometimes hard to see because their skin does a great job camouflaging them among the trees and vegetation. When they are attacked in the wild, they will jump out of trees and dive into water and swim away.

Iguanas are strong. They have powerful feet and their tail is muscular and strong. They are also excellent swimmers.

They spend the majority of their time basking in the sun.
