The Rhinoceros Iguana gets its name from its outgrowths, like horns, on the end of it's nose. These large, heavy bodied lizards are dusky- grey or olive green with dark cross bands that are often barely visible. They have three horny bumps on the snout, which are more pronounced in males. The average adult is 2 feet in length.
