Caption: Green iguana skin. Close-up of the skin of a green or common iguana (Iguana iguana). Its skin is covered in hard scales, and acts as armour against shocks and predators. The green iguana inhabits tropical rainforests in Central and northern South America. They are adept at climbing trees, and prefer to live on forested river banks. Young iguanas mainly eat insects, but adults are almost entirely vegetarian, eating leaves and fruit. Adults may reach a length of up to two metres. Despite their size and formidable bite, iguanas prefer to leap into the water and swim away when threatened.
