Galapagos Land Iguana


Galapagos Land Iguana

The Galapagos Land Iguana (Conolophus subcristatus) is native to Galapagos Islands. They can live 60 Years and grow to 4 - 5 Feet. Their conservation statis is Vulnerable (VU).

Galapagos land iguanas are not typically kept as pets. Human population increases in places of the Galapagos islands have drove many of these lizards out, so far that their conservation status is now considered to be Vulnerable (VU).

These lizards obtain the majority of their food from fruits, flowers, pads, prickly pear cactus and even the occasional centipede. They’re mainly herbivores.

The Galapagos land iguana can reach up to 5 feet in length and weight around 25 lbs. It’s also estimated that they can live up to 60 years.
