This Beautiful Blue Lizard is Facing Extinction
Found only in Grand Cayman, the westernmost part of the Cayman Islands, the Grand Cayman blue iguana is a striking creature. Its bright blue skin becomes brighter during breeding season, and its dark red eyes allow the lizards to see moving shapes at long distances. Although these iguanas have lifespans similar to those of humans, threats to their habitat by humans and free roaming predators are threatening their existence.
