Green Iguana (Iguana iguana)
A young adult Green Iguana I saw about a week ago. This individual was actually quite comfortable with my presence, however, I didn't want to push my luck and make the reptile run away so I zoomed all the way to get a portrait. Fun fact about these vibrant reptiles, in my country there are heavily hunted and in some areas are not easily seen which was the case in my area years ago, but where I live my neighbours started "farming" iguanas about 15 years ago as a source of food and they are now widespread around this part of my town and there are roughly 12 breeding iguanas which live near to us and always produce offspring each year.
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.
