The iguana
A genus of squamate sauropsids (reptiles) of the family Iguanidae. are reptiles that have a light green body coloration, although in some species this tends to be somewhat darker or duller. Iguanas tend to change their skin constantly. Although this process depends on the food, the stress of the individual, the iguana terrarium and other characteristics of the place where they are. Iguanas have excellent vision and can see bodies, shadows and movement at great distances. They have a body temperature that varies according to the environment. A green iguana should maintain its temperature between 29 and 39 C°, during the day, and at nightfall, around 20 and 25 C°. It is vital that temperatures are maintained in these ranges because it depends on them that the animal correctly execute the processes of feeding, reproduction and digestion. On the other hand, the iguana should not be placed in a place where there are other specimens of its species since its behaviour with other iguanas can be aggressive. Reptiles are cold-blooded animals and their habitat is warm and tropical areas, so they need the sun to survive and stay healthy. The female, when she is pregnant, digs tunnels to lay her eggs and disperse them, and thus mislead predators. These tunnels can be up to 2 meters deep. Iguanas are herbivores; in fact, it can be dangerous for them to eat meat. However, in some areas, as part of their habitat has been destroyed, they have been forced to feed on anything to survive, with the negative consequences that this can entail.
