Costa Rica Picture of the Day – Each day the Costa Rican Times will be including a picture from around Costa Rica to see the natural beauty and amazing things that we get to see each day in the land of the Pura Vida.
Of the about 600 iguana species in the world, 38 of them can be found in Costa Rica.
Whether you are laying by the pool or walking through the jungle it is hard for you to leave the country without running into one of these reptiles.
The Green Iguana which can be easily spotted and recognized due to their color, tail included, can grow longer than 2 meters and weigh up to 10 kg over about 22 pounds.
