[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Caribbean rock iguanas (genus Cyclura) are the most endangered group of lizards in the world, due to habitat loss and predation from introduced mammalian predators. It is the largest native land animal and dominant herbivore in the British Virgin Islands, and plays a key role in the maintenance and perpetuation of native plant communities by facilitating the germination and dispersal of seeds that pass through its digestive track. This one calls the San Diego Zoo it's home.
