The green iguana or common iguana is a large, arboreal, mostly herbivorous species of lizard of the genus ''Iguana'' native to Central, South America, and the Caribbean. Usually, this animal is simply called the iguana. The green iguana ranges over a large geographic area, from southern Brazil and Paraguay as far north as Mexico and the Caribbean Islands.
