Green Iguana

green iguana

Lost Valley is home to incredible exotic species including Diego the Green Iguana. 

The Green Iguana is arboreal which means they spend most of their time in trees.  They prefer to be near water and will easily dive in and swim away if faced with a predator. The tail of the Green Iguana makes up half of their body length and can be used like a whip for defence.

The Green Iguana's two prominent nostrils are used to expel
a saline solution to regulate its body temperature.
