The green Iguana is endangered and lives in Rainforests, and tropical dry forests, they eat plants so that makes them herbivores. The largest lizard species in Central America, the adult green iguana, can reach 6 feet in length and weigh up to 12 pounds. The species is known for its long whip-like tail that accounts for more than half its total length. Like many lizards, green iguanas have evolved a defense mechanism where they can drop there tails if caught by a predator. Although stressful to the animal, the tail regenerates without permanent damage to the iguana.
