Iguanas are plentiful in Costa Rica. If you look up in the trees, you may be under the watchful eye of an iguana. As you walk along almost any path, you may see an iguana leave as you approach. Even in town, they can be seen walking across a sidewalk as they head into the bushes.
Most iguanas are grey in color and walk slowly as their torso waddles from side to side with each step. They resemble miniature dinosaurs.
Baby iguanas are bright green in color and are even cute in appearance. They may be mistaken for a gecko. Few would call adult iguanas cute. Iguanas become more colorful, like this one, when they are attempting to attract a mate.
