LESSER ANTILLES IGUANA

Iguana delicatissima

RANGE: Dominica Lesser Antilles islands West Indies Caribbean

CONSERVATION STATUS: Vulnerable due to destruction of rainforest habitat, introduced predators and hunting.

DIET: Herbivorous

NOTES: Shy and timid. Prefer to live in trees. The first captive-bred individual of this species was successfully born at the Jersey Zoo 1997. There is a theory that iguanas have been dispersed  widely by travelling over water on flotsam, for example as a result of hurricanes.
