The Rhinoceros Iguana is primarily found on the Caribbean island of Hispaniola, shared by the Republic of Haiti and the Dominican Republic. While its life span is 5-10 years old in the wild, 20-year life spans have been recorded for captive individuals.
The iguana at the Greenville Zoo is named Scar.
Scar's favorite treat is dandelions.
Iguanas enjoy climbing trees.
