Iguana iguana
We report a population of the Green Iguana, Iguana iguana, in a remnant of Atlantic Forest in the municipality of Vila Velha, EspĂ­rito Santo state, southeastern Brazil. We found both adult and subadult specimens, which indicates the existence of an established population. This is the southernmost record of the species, located at 820 km south from the previous southern extreme of the species' range in the Atlantic Forest (Amargosa, Bahia).
