The 9th in our new challenge layout catering for all aspects of nature for us nature lovers.
As you can see the title will start with the category which will make it easier for me when choosing what challenge to do next, I can see the challenges I have already run in this category.
For this challenge please add your images of IGUANAS.
This family also includes a number of other related lizards, click to check.
> Iguana is a herbivorous genus of lizard native to tropical areas of Central and South America and the Caribbean.
> The word “iguana” is derived from a Spanish form of the original Taino name for the species “Iwana”.
> The two species of lizard within the genus Iguana possess a dewlap, a row of spines running down their back to their tail, and a third “eye” on their head. This eye is known as the parietal eye, visible as a pale scale on the top of the head.
> Iguanas have excellent vision and can see shapes, shadows, colors and movement at long distances.
> Green iguanas are also known as bamboo chickens. They can and will reach 5 to 6 feet and weigh up to 18 pounds. There is a reason that many are calling them “Giant Green Iguanas”.
> These guys are able to hold their breath for up to 30 minutes.
> When evading predators they can fall for 40 to 50 meters without being injured.
