[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Most iguanas live in the rainforests of Central and South America but some come from drier areas and along the coasts. Young iguanas are a very light green and blend in well with their natural habitat. Their tail is striped and this also help them blend in. Older iguanas live high up in the trees. All iguanas are excellent climbers. They are also great swimmers. They hold their legs close to their body and propel through the water using their tail, much the same way as crocodiles and alligators swim.

Wow, must be fantastic to see such an animal ! This iguana looks great, and I also see that his camouflage is very effective - must be hard to spot him. Excellent details, nice natural colors, beautiful composition and POV, nice pose of the Iguana. Very well done !
