Costa Rica Iguanas
Green Iguana’s Breeding Pond:
The population of green iguana has fallen to a point where they are now an endangered species. Hunting practices are part of the reasons for a decline in Central America; they have been hunted for their meat and eggs in the country for centuries. Iguanas are such a common food that they are locally known as the Tree’s chicken. Knowing this at Turu Ba Ri Park we decided to create a green iguana’s breeding pond. Today, we have released about 200 iguanas and more then 2,000 wander freely around the property!
Come and visit it and learn about these little dinosaurs their breeding process and help us keep doing this.
