The Pink Iguana | March 11th, 2009

The pink iguana was documented for the first time in 1986 by National Park and CDF staff during a field survey of Wolf volcano.  After several years of investigations, scientists have determined that the pink iguana of Wolf volcano is a separate species.  Work is now underway to determine the conservation status of the species, and decide what management (if any) is needed.

As an aside, Julian reports that “back in the ‘70’s when I was running the yacht operation, our standard drink was a ‘Pink Iguana’, which consisted of rum and grapefruit juice. Very palatable too!”
