Green Iguana (Iguana iguana)

Series of measured illustrations of the Green Iguana

The green iguana (Iguana iguana) or just iguana, is known as one of the largest lizards in the Americas as well as one of the most popular pet choices despite its noted difficulty to handle. Within this broad range extending from southern Mexico to Bolivia, the green iguana prefers to live near water either burrowed in the ground or up in the trees. When threatened, the green iguana will head for the water, fleeing with the use of its tail. If it is unable to escape, it will bob its head and inflate the flap of skin under its neck.

The Green Iguana has an overall length between 12”-17” (30.5-43.2 cm), body width of 1.18”-1.69” (3-4.3 cm), body height of 1.46”-2.05” (3.7-5.2 cm), and weight between 2.6-8.8 lb (1.2-4 kg). The typical lifespan of the Green Iguana is between 12-25 years.
