Rhinoceros iguanas are grey-brown lizards that have a crest and a row of spines on their backs. Males can be over 50cm long and weigh 10kg.
Rhinoceros iguanas are found in tropical dry forests in the Dominican Republic and Haiti.
These iguanas can live alone or in groups, although males are territorial and will not live with other males. Female iguanas lay up to 30 eggs in a tunnel; these can take up to six months to hatch. They mainly live in trees when they are young as it is safer.
