This kind of a large arboreal lizard feeds on plants and usually lives near water. It is distinguished by a row of spines of its back and tail, a dewlap at its throat and two round cheek scales. Iguana has a rather friendly disposition, it is calm and not very active, nevertheless, its beautiful coloration and unusual, "dragon-like" mouth make the animal attractive for many people. Breeding iguanas is not easy – a reptile pet requires a properly equipped terrarium, with special lamps and heating. Adult lizard is over a meter long, so it should be provided with quite a large space.
