Turks and Caicos Rock Iguana

Animals Home > Reptiles
There are over 50,000 Turks and Caicos Rock Iguanas on the Turks and Caicos Islands.


Latin Name: Cyclura carinata Conservation Status: Critical
Distribution: Turks and Caicos Islands  
The introduction of predators to their natural habitats have resulted in the number of Turks and Caicos Rock Iguanas dropping. Their biggest introduced predators are domestic dogs and cats. Some locales on these islands have banned cats and dogs outright in an attempt to assist the local population of these lizards.
