Iguanas - Reptiles - Distribution
There exist many subspecies of Iguanas, some of which are unknown to people. The most popular are Green Iguanas, which are found in the rainforests of Central and South America and in drier areas along the coast. They can live high up in the trees or near the ground as their green stripped coloring blends with its natural habitat. There are also Marine Iguanas that are found in Galapagos Islands. They prefer rocky coasts, mangrove swamps, and beaches. Our prehistoric ancestors hunted iguanas for food, today some tribes still eat Iguanas.

Iguanas - Reptiles - Social Structure
Iguana males are large and bright, and the females are smaller and gray or black in color. Males have harems of several females and protect them from other males. Fights are occasional and harmless. The breeding season lasts for three months. Iguanas reproduce prolifically: mature females produce up to 30 eggs per year for about 10 years. The eggs are laid in sand-filled chambers or in volcanic ash.

2. Care And Feeding Of Iguanas
A basic care sheet from the Avian and Exotic Animal Hospital in San Diego, CA.
Care and Feeding of Iguanas By Christine Hancock Iguanas are one of the most popular reptiles purchased from pet shops today. This animal can grow anywhere from 4-6 feet in length, reaching a maximum weight of 10-15 pounds. On average, they live 12-15 years in captivity, however they can live up to 20 years if taken care of properly. Iguanas come from a hot and humid environment, therefore, they are more active during daylight hours. They can become territorial and will not hesitate to use their strong and powerful jaws, nails, or tail. Indoor Housing
A juvenile iguana can reside in a 30-50 gallon aquarium, however, their rapid growth will cause them to outgrow this enclosure within a few months. Enclosures come in many different sizes, shapes, and styles and are made out of wood, glass, or plexiglass. The substrate should be easy to clean to help you out. Newspaper works well and is most cost efficient, however, artificial grass, indoor-outdoor carpeting, or linoleum are excellent choices as well. Avoid sand, soil, and bark, as these substrates can lead to obstruction or impaction if your pet ingests them. Shallow food and water dishes should be provided, and thoroughly cleaned and disinfected at least twice a week. It is also important to provide your iguana with climbing materials such as branches, pieces of bark, rocks, broad limbs, or drift wood. Water
Iguanas need water to survive and should have it readily available. Iguanas obtain most of their water intake through the plant matter they consume, however, some iguanas enjoy drinking out of water dishes, or lapping water off leaves or wood in the cage. Misting your iguana and it’s environment daily will help keep it hydrated and provide it water droplets to drink. Some iguanas who are provided water dishes may train themselves to eliminate in their water. Their dishes need to be regularly and thoroughly cleaned and disinfected to prevent internal bacterial infections.

Quick Facts
The green iguana is a reptile found throughout Central and South America. While it is not generally an endangered animal in some places, like Belize, it is because of hunting. Large females are the favorite individuals to harvest. Unfortunately, these same individuals are critical to the reproductive success of the species. As a food source, the green iguana is also known as the " Bamboo Chicken The Belize Zoo, under the guidance of Tony Gerel , has an " Iguana Farming " project to help reduce the pressures of hunting wild iguana.
Iguana Vocabulary:
Physical Appearance: Full-grown green iguanas are usually between four and six feet, although they have been known to grow up to seven feet long. This includes the tail, however, which can make up about half the body length and, in addition to its green color, has black stripes. Green iguanas, not surprisingly, are green in color, but can be found in many different shade ranging from bright green, to a dull, grayish-green. Their skin is rough, with a set of pointy scales along the iguana's back. Green iguanas have long fingers and claws to help them climb and grasp. Geographic Range: The green iguana is found over a large geographic area, from Mexico to southern Brazil and Paraguay, as well as on the Caribbean Islands.

About Iguanas
Ever see the long lumbering reptiles at the pet store. Iguanas can reach up to 6 feet in length. Domestic ones usually can grow their tails quite long, unlike the ones in the wild. The one’s in the wild tend to use this tail for defense. The tail alone can actually split the skin and in rare cases cause stitches. Iguanas are also non-poisonous lizards. Although it does hurt when you have one burying its claws into your arm and whipping your side. It would actually be a good idea to let the iguana out when you can, many of the cages are not suited for an animal like this. The best solution is to either have someone build a cage or to try yourself. Assuming that you have the needed tool Also remember that the cage must start out big, for the Iguana will continue to get bigger and it would be better to have them to grow into one cage than grow into 3 to 5 cages. Remember to always check the condition of the fridge.
What to Feed Iguanas
Iguanas that are to be pets should be fed only a vegetarian diet. Meat makes them aggressive and even mean. Never feed them red colored vegetables, the pigmentation will kill them (such as radishes). Even the juice from an animal on the leaves will make the Iguana more aggressive.

Try to stay with the ones with in the URL box or find all my articles at ACC.htm Green Iguanas come from the forests of Central and South America. Because they like warmth and sunshine, they live in the trees at the edge of the jungle and in clearings. Iguanas are active in the day-time and sleep at night. There, they can be seen sunning themselves on large tree branches or feeding among the tree leaves. Iguanas are very territorial. A single large male guards a territory not much bigger than a residential lot and it will run off any other adult males that are in sight. I watched this, growing up near Tampico, Mexico.

Phylum: Chordata
Class: Sauropsida
Order: Squamata
Suborder: Iguania
Family: Iguanidae
Genus: Iguana
Species Iguana is a genus of lizard native to tropical areas of Central and South America and the Caribbean . The genus was first described by Austrian naturalist Josephus Nicolaus Laurenti in his book Specimen Medicum, Exhibens Synopsin Reptilium Emendatam cum Experimentis circa Venena in 1768. The genus Iguana includes two species : the Green Iguana , which is widespread throughout its range and a popular pet, and the Lesser Antillean Iguana , which is endemic to the Lesser Antilles and endangered due to habitat destruction. The word "Iguana" is derived from a Spanish form of the original Taino name for the species "Iwana".

Iguanas Galapagos Land Iguana The Galapagos Land Iguana (Conolophus subcristatus) is a species of lizard in the Iguanidae family. It is one of two species of the genus Conolophus. It is endemic to the Galápagos Islands, primarily the islands of Fernandina, Isabela, Santa Cruz, North Seymour, Hood and South Plaza.
The Galapagos Land Iguana varies in morphology and coloration among different island populations. There are two taxonomically distinct forms of Conolophus inhabiting the western part of the islands (C. cristatus and C. pallidus) and one in the central part (C. cristatus). Its generic name, Conolophus, is derived from two Greek words: cono meaning "spiny" and loph meaning "crest", denoting the spiny crests along their backs. Its specific name subcristatus is derived from the Latin words sub meaning "lesser" and cristatus meaning "crested," and refers to the low crest of spines along the animal's back which is not as tall as in most iguanids.
Charles Darwin described the Galapagos Land Iguana as "ugly animals, of a yellowish orange beneath, and of a brownish-red color above: from their low facial angle they have a singularly stupid appearance." The Galapagos Land Iguana grows to a length of three to five feet with a body weight of up to twenty-five pounds, depending upon which island they are from. Being cold-blooded, they absorb heat from the sun by basking on volcanic rock, and at night sleep in burrows to conserve their body heat. These iguanas also enjoy a symbiotic relationship with birds; the birds remove parasites and ticks, providing relief to the iguanas and food for the birds.

    zSB(3,3) Iguanas are certainly one of the most popular lizards to be kept as pets. There are a multitude of online resources available to iguana owners or potential owners. The pages listed below cover the basics (and sometimes in-depth) considerations for iguana care, certainly far better than I could. There are a few points that I would like to cover before listing some of the better iguana pages on the Net. Iguanas are one of the more recent "fad" pets, becoming readily available in many pet stores, often at very low prices. These are young iguanas that don't seem to be too difficult to care for, a myth often perpetuated by retailers hoping to sell them. Of course, they are very cute too! But, as with all reptiles, iguanas have fairly strict feeding and housing requirements. And they grow, often very large (if they survive) and they can be difficult to tame and become aggressive. This is not to say that iguanas cannot make good pets - but they need the proper care right from the start, and owners need to have the right expectations. Melissa Kaplan, who authors what I would consider to be the best reptile site on the Net, has written an article entitled "

    Geographic Range
    Green iguanas, Iguana iguana , occur throughout Central and South America, from Sinaloa and Veracruz, Mexico, south to the Tropic of Capricorn in Paraguay and southeast Brazil. This large lizard also inhabits many islands throughout the Caribbean region and the coastal eastern Pacific, and has been introduced into southern Florida and in Hawaii. This is the largest known lizard to occur within the borders of the United States (Conant and Collins, 1998; Campbell, 1998). Campbell, 1998 Conant and Collins, 1998 Biogeographic Regions:

    Green Iguanas are arboreal lizards that live high in the tree canopy. Juveniles establish areas lower in the canopies while older mature iguanas reside higher up. This tree dwelling habit allows them to bask in the sun, rarely coming down except when females dig burrows to lay eggs. Although preferring an arboreal (forested) environment, they can adjust well to a more open area. No matter where they inhabit, they prefer to have water around as they are excellent swimmers and will dive beneath the water to avoid predators (Conant and Collins 1998).

Some species live in trees near the water, others are ground dwellers. All are good swimmers. Iguanas live chiefly on fruit, vegetation, and birds' eggs. Both the flesh and the eggs of iguanas are eaten. Iguanas eat insects, fruit, flowers, and leaves. The grayish-green common iguana is the largest species. The horned rhinoceros iguana lives in the West Indies. The marine iguana lives in the Galápagos Islands off Ecuador. What Is a Lizard?
