Rhinoceros Iguana

Cyclura cornuta

Rhinoceros iguanas, also known as rhino iguanas, are large lizards named for the horn-like scales on their snout, which resemble a rhino’s horn.



Size: Length 1 - 1.2 metres
Weight: Up to 10kg



They are found on the island of Hispaniola, in the Caribbean, where they live in dry, rocky habitats and forests.



Rhino iguanas are mainly herbivores, feeding on fruit, flowers and leaves. Young iguanas also take a variety of insects and other small animals.



Females lay up to 34 eggs in a nest dug in the sand, which they guard for a few days after laying. Eggs can take around 85 days to hatch and the young are independent from birth.



Rhino iguanas are threatened in the wild by habitat destruction, and hunting by feral cats, dogs and pigs. However, they are found in some protected reserves and a successful breeding programme exists in zoos.
