Iguana delicatissima

Today, we received a visit of a Lesser Antillean Iguana (Iguana delicatissima) that is endangered by our civilization and by the agressive “green” Iguana (Iguana iguana) which arrived on the caribbean islands through the animal trade. From the 17 islands of the West Indies, only 7 are hosting a viable population of the “native” and rare species Iguana delicatissima.

Heute hat uns ein kleiner Antillen-Leguan (Iguana delicatissima) besucht. Dieses Reptil wird von unserer Zivilisation und dem aggressiven “grünen” Leguan (Iguana Iguana) welcher durch den Tierhandel auf die karibischen Inseln gekommen ist, stark bedroht. Von den 17 Westindischen Inseln beherbergen nur noch gerade 7 eine lebensfähige Population dieser seltenen „einheimischen“ Spezies Iguana delicatissima.
