Lab #3: Iguanas Page1

Iguanas comprise a group of about 20 species of New World lizards. Probably the most familiar is the common green iguana (Iguana iguana) of Central and South America, which is shown above. Green iguanas spend much of their lives in the trees of dense tropical forests feeding on leaves and fruit. They are becoming increasing popular in the United States as pets due to their alert, responsive behavior, and their intelligent and fastidious ways.
