Green Iguana - Iguana iguana

Green Iguana - Iguana iguana
The Green Iguana - Iguana iguana - is a very common yet strange creature as it can actually be found in a variety of colours and patterns from bright green through to grey and even a reddish colour. An adult iguana's colour is normally a greyish green, while a young iguana is a bright neon green, which can become darker if it feels threatened. I suspect that this one is between juvenile and adult. If an iguana senses danger, its initial reaction is to change color, then it tries to find a place where it can camouflage better and blend in with its surroundings. Once an iguana realizes that it has been detected, it has no other choice than to run as fast as possible for shelter. Iguana's are surprisingly fast - they raise their bodies off the ground with their legs, and sprint off at an impressive pace, almost seeming to be running on tiptoe. This one was seen near the Divi Golf Course, Aruba.
