Housed at the Zoological Park, Noumea the Iguana possess a dewlap, a row of spines running down their back to their tail, and a third "eye" on their head.
This is a pretty impressive close-up. I never realized all the detail.

@Gary: Nor did I - it was good to get so close
Very impressive, detailed shot. And assuming it was behind glass you've done well to get an angle where we can see it rather than reflections of lights and people!

Thanks and yes you are right and it was quite hard to get any clear shots without glass reflection

Best regards. Adela
