Blue Iguana Fights Extinction and Wins!

On this episode of On Location, Mark and the crew are in one of the most remote parts of Grand Cayman Island to meet a lizard that was brought back from the brink of extinction!

Get ready, you're about to see a blue iguana that fought extinction and WON!

    Sir, thanks for sharing this. I'm visiting my sister and her hubby in Lord's Bank Village Belize. We were iguana watching. We saw 7 of them. 3 green ones, 2 brown ones and 2 orange ones. They were going after the green ones but they jump off the trees. I'm so fascinated by these and nature. I'm from Belize, this my first time home in 36 years and I'm enjoying every moment of my time..

    Guys I have two blue iguanas as pets both are amazing more my kids than pets and both have unique personalities. And i guess I have you to thank for the repopulation of this beautiful reptile, mine are still young and very mischievous but so much love and respect is given back. Though I find my male to be super chilled and cuddly my female likes to run riots around the house and garden. She is seriously nuts. So guys from Wales in the UK thank you so much x
