Red Iguana

The Red Iguana is a sub-species of Green Iguana found primarily in the Western Regions of Costa Rica. Although morph iguanas in the pet trade can be found in colors from blue to yellow to red and orange, true Red Iguanas have greenish blue heads and under bellies. They are herbivores eating a wide variety of plants, flowers and leafy greens. Red Iguanas are very good climbers and can fall from tree and cliff heights of 50 ft. landing unharmed! The red Iguana ranges in size from 4.5 ft. to nearly 6.5 ft.
