Green Iguanas (iguana iguana)

Green iguanas range from Mexico through Central and South America and many of the Caribbean islands. There are also feral populations in California, Florida and Hawaii. Each country I visited has its own shade or tint of iguana iguana to admire.

Iguanas are arboreal. They are good swimmers, jumpers, diggers and baskers. The Caribbean islanders call them tree or bamboo chickens and say (surprise!) they taste just like that poultry.
