Green Iguana
This is an adult male Green Iguana (Iguana iguana). These iguanas are typically about two metres in length from head to tail and can weigh up to 5 kg. Males have highly developed pores that secrete scent, and are often covered in a waxy substance. In addition, the spiny scales that run along an iguana's back are noticeably longer and thicker in males than they are in females. (From: Wikipedia, Feb. 2006). See Lodge information and prices.
