Allen's cay rock iguana {Cyclura cychlura inornata} Bahamas..Like other West Indian rock iguanas (Cyclura spp.), the northern Bahamian rock iguana is a large and robust ?dinosaur-like' lizard with an impressive crest of spiny scales running down its back and a variable array of bright and beautiful colours, particularly between the three subspecies. The Andros Island iguana is dark grey to black, with yellowish tinged scales on the legs, dorsal crest, and particularly the head. With maturity, however, this yellow slowly changes to a warm orange-red, especially in large males. The Exuma Island iguana is generally regarded as the smallest of the three subspecies, although size may vary between populations as colouration does. Adults from Bitter Guana and Gaulin Cays are a dull grey-black interspersed with pale grey spots. The crest scales are either white or pale red, while scales on the head are black, tinged with orange on the snout. Adults from Guana Cay are dull black with a white throat and belly, either grey, red-tinged or scarlet dorsal crest, and light blue head and face. Allen's Cay iguana is grey-black with cream, pink or orange mottling...www.solvinzankl.com..Solvin Zankl.Schwartenbeker Weg 67.24107 Kiel.Germany..Tel: +49(0)431-311581..eMail(1): info@solvinzankl.com..eMail(2): szankl@aol.com
