Green iguanas are large lizards that can grow to one metre in length. Young lizards are bright green, the bands across their shoulders and tail become darker as they grow older.
Green iguanas are found in tropical rainforests in Central America and northern South America.
Green iguanas usually live on their own. Females lay up to 40 eggs in an underground chamber several times each year.
