ABSTRACT
Iguana, a large lizard of tropical America. The largest iguanas attain a length of about six feet (1.8 m), over half of which is tail. The iguana has black, brown, or green scales. A spiny ridge extends down its back and a dewlap (skin flap) hangs from its throat. Some species live in trees near the water, others are ground dwellers. All are good swimmers. Iguanas live chiefly on fruit, vegetation, and birds' eggs. Both the flesh and the eggs of iguanas are eaten.
