Life in green

Green iguanas’ bodies are covered in soft, leathery scales. Female lizards are a brighter green than males. The spines on iguanas’ backs give them a prehistoric appearance. These strange-looking creatures have been known to grow up to 2.3m in length, and are found in Central and South America, and in parts of the West Indies.



The silk moth is a master of deception. As adults they look like brown, dead leaves, and as caterpillars they fool predators too: their fat green bodies and false eyes fool predators into thinking they are snakes.
