Fijian Iguana

About the Fijian Iguana

The Fijian Iguana is native to Fiji. They were originally found throughout 14 Fijian islands, but today are restricted to just three. They live amongst dry forests and in coastal areas, spending the majority of their time in the trees, rarely coming down to the ground.

These lizards are primarily herbivorous and forage for leaves, flowers and fruit. On a rare occasion, they may also treat themselves to an insect.

Did you know?

The Iguanas change colour when threatened. Their normal colour is bright green (females) and green and blue banded pattern (males) when relaxed, they can go dark green when they are getting upset, and black indicates they feel extremely threatened.
