BIOPARC FUENGIROLA: Rhinoceros iguana
BIOPARC FUENGIROLA: Rhinoceros iguana

DON’T let the name frighten you.

Rhinoceros iguanas are only about a metre long, and they won’t hurt you as long as you behave.

The reason for their name? A bony outgrowth on the snout which looks like – but most certainly isn’t – a horn.

This threatened lizard species is primarily found in the Caribbean, with skin colours ranging from a steely grey to a forest green.

But the Costa del Sol is in luck too, as Fuengirola Bioparc is also home to this special creature.
