“Ha! A green iguana in the pink … so to speak.”
… and his name really is Floyd!
While these iguanas can change color, chameleons are the champions. Iguanas are essentially herbivores. They love beans. Their mating season is tied to the weather. They mate in the fall when the weather is dry. They like to live and forage in trees and on the ground.
If you have an interest in supporting iguanas and other endangered species, you can “adopt” one through the Smithsonian National Zoological Park among others. Such adoption programs are implemented by zoos around the world. Often they include special privileges for adopters. One zoo near us offers a night at the zoo to folks who adopt an animal.
