      West Indian rock iguanas (genus Cyclura: Iguanidae) are among the most endangered lizards in the world, and many species will need to occupy human-modified and -occupied habitats to escape Grand Cayman Blue Iguana, Cyclura lewisi, is critically endangered with fewer than 25 wild iguanas aid the conservation of this and other iguanas, we investigated .

    Since adult rock iguanas are the largest land vertebrates on their islands, they have few natural predators. However, hatchling and juvenile iguanas have quite a few predators. Natural predators for young rock iguanas include birds, snakes, and in one recorded instance, barracuda. Introduced species are the biggest threat to Cyclura species. This chapter describes the findings of long-term research on the critically endangered San Salvador rock iguana, Cyclura rileyi. It begins with detailed assessments of all known C. rileyi populations, including population size, morphological features, demographic measures, habitat characteristics, and identified threats. It then describes several projects for invasive species control and.

In what is certain to be the key reference on iguanas for years to come, some of the world's leading experts offer a clear and accessible account of the latest research on the evolution, behavioral ecology, and conservation of these highly visible and increasingly endangered creatures, much loved by professional herpetologists and hobbyists book begins with an introduction.

The historic rarity of the critically endangered Grand Cayman blue iguana, Cyclura lewisi, has prevented detailed research on this species prior to this decade. This study primarily used focal animal observations, transect sweeps, and radio-telemetry to document the behavioral ecology of a captive-bred, reintroduced population of adult C.
