Back from the brink of extinction, we're excited to announce our new exhibit in World of Reptiles featuring blue iguanas.
The Grand Cayman iguana, also known as the blue iguana, has such colorful skin there's no question where its name comes from. Unfortunately, this species' past hasn't been so vibrant.
There were once less than 20 of these animals in the wild. WCS's Zoological Health Program, based here at the zoo, has helped with captive breeding, incubating and hatching of eggs, and more to turn this tale into a conservation success story.
We're hopeful that the colorful twosome will eventually breed and continue a bright future for these reptiles.
