A turtle of SE Asian origin...
"Red" iguanas (actually rust to orange) have become common in petshops in the U.S. Once more the extraordinary diversity seen in this "species" makes me wonder when someone will do a systematic study and demonstrate that there are several species of "common" iguanas.
Collected in Thailand (so I was informed), but likely Vietnam.
In the company of one Dick "Shutterbug" Bartlett, photographer extraordinaire!
Non-native species, brought TO Hawaii FROM Central America.
Seen at a Herp Expo in 2011.
Blue Tree Monitor, subgenus Euprepiosaurus
Male in brightest breeding colours. Photographed in a private collection.
