Caption: Green iguana (Iguana iguana) on a rock by a pool. Although mainly arboreal (tree-dwelling), the green iguana prefers to be near water, into which it dives when it feels threatened. It is herbivorous, feeding on fruits, leaves, flowers and shoots. An adult may attain a length of around two metres. The green iguana is widely distributed in the tropical forests of Central America and northern South America. Despite its size it is a popular pet, although it does require specialist conditions to be healthy. Photographed on Bonaire Island in the Netherlands Antilles.
