Rhinoceros Iguana For Sale
The Caribbean island of Hispaniola is home to a critically endangered iguana species known as the Rhinoceros iguana. The biggest of its genus, these iguanas may range in length from two to three meters and have a variety of skin hues, from dark green to brown. The iguana got its name because its nose has a bony plate that looks like a rhinoceros’ horn, thus the comparison.
Habits and Lifestyle
The lonesome and daytime-active rhinoceros iguana lives in the desert. They spend much of their time in the sun, warming themselves on rocky outcroppings where there is minimal vegetation. They find shelter from the night outside in caverns or hollow trees. While they are fast to run when threatened, Rhinoceros iguanas will often fight when provoked. When trapped, they may bite and hit repeatedly with their powerful tail.
Diet and Nutrition
The leaves, flowers, berries, seeds, and fruits of various plant species make up the bulk of a rhinoceros iguana’s diet. Smaller animals like lizards and snakes, as well as insects and even carrion, are fair game.
