The Rhinoceros Iguana is named after the small horn on the
nose, mainly prominent on the male.
Native to the island of Haiti and the Dominican Republic, the
iguana, which can grown to a length of 4.5 feet, was
almost driven to extinction by the arrival of humans and
their pets. It is still threatened by forest clearance and
hunted by locals for food.
It lives in dry, rocky forests and scrub and is mainly
vegetarian, eating leaves, fruit and flowers.
