Scientific Name: Cyclura cornuta
Habitat: rocky, scrub areas
Range: Dominican Republican and the Caribbean

The Rhinoceros Iguana is a ground dwelling herbivore that gets it name from the "horns" on it's nose. They also have large bulges on the top of their heads. The Rhinoceros Iguana is primarily a herbivore but may occasionally eat insects. I am looking for additional information on the Rhinoceros Iguana. E-mail me if you have some you are willing to share. This photo was taken at the Nashville Zoo.
