Cayman Island Blue Iguana Cyclura lewisi


The endangered blue iguana spends its time basking in the sun during the day and sleeping in shelter at night. Its distinctive red eyes help reduce the sun’s glare.

These herbivorous lizards eat mostly leaves and stems, and some fruits and flowers.
The lizards are only found in dry rocky coastal forests on Grand Cayman Island.
