Although called the green iguana, these lizards can vary in color depending on age, temperature, mood, and social status. Generally, the older the iguana gets, the more uniform their color becomes. These large lizards possess a “third eye” - a parietal eye on the dorsal midline of the skull that serves as a solar energy meter and helps detect predatory shadows from above.
