Iguanas are some of the largest lizards found in the Americas. Iguanas are lizards identified by their stocky body and its spines that extend down its back and tail. Their long, sharp tail makes up about half the length of its body.  They are manily spotted high up in the treetops and live near water. They are excellent swimmers and will plunge into the water below for safety if they feel threated.
