New green iguana data

Data from a recent cull of invasive green iguanas shows fighting them will be an uphill climb. For example, researchers say a small, one pound female can still produce up to 10 eggs. D.o.E Terrestrial Field Research Officer Jane Haakonsson says the new data shows a direct relationship between female weight and the number of eggs for its first reproduction.

She told Cayman 27, “We found out that the amount of eggs that a female has is proportionate to her body size yet a 450 gram or 500 gram female could still have 9 to 10 eggs in her, so it was something that I think we were all quite surprised about just how efficient breeders they are.”

More than 14,000 iguanas were taken by bounty hunters in a recent cull meant to gather new data on how fast the population is growing.
