Iguanas in Oranjestad

Aruba Tourist Information and Vacation Guide

When visiting Oranjestad, keep an eye open for the green iguanas that live on the island.

These reptiles can grow to about 1.5 meters and are often found in colonies with others. The green row of spines that run along their backs help protect them from predatory birds.
