More info: Iguanas are part of the lizard family and are found in Mexico, Central and South America, the Galápagos Islands, on some of the Caribbean islands, Fiji and Madagascar. They typically live in tropical and subtropical forests, deserts and coastlines.

Overall, most iguanas are herbivores and only eat vegetation such as flower buds, fruits and young leaves. Iguanas are social creatures that eat and live together. Male iguanas are very territorial, though, and will fight other encroaching male iguanas. Like most lizards, iguanas lay eggs, though the number of eggs varies, depending on species.

The female iguana lays her eggs in a burrow, covers them up and then leaves them alone. The eggs will stay a steady 77 to 89 degrees Fahrenheit (25 to 32 degrees Celsius), which incubates them until they hatch. The baby iguanas are completely on their own for the three years it takes to fully mature because their mother never returns. Many young iguanas never make it to maturity.
