Cuban Rock Iguana
An Iguana’s tail has weakened vertebrae – if caught by the tail, an iguana can break free from its tail to attempt escape
The Cuban Rock Iguana is usually grey in colour stripped or mottles with tan and has tan head and tail. Adults reach about 4-5ft in length, with a high dorsal crest scales. Like all iguanas, they like to climb, but feel comfortable on the ground. They often sun themselves on rocks. This herbivorous species has red eyes, a thick tail and spiked jowls and is one of the largest lizards in the Caribbean.
