The Iguana is called “Yuwana” in Papiamento. It is a very impressive animal. An adult male can reach a length of 2 meters, including its tail, and is usually slightly larger than the female.
The adult Yuwana has a green-gray color, while the younger Yuwana is bright green. The color of the Yuwana sometimes also depends on its emotions, temperature, health, and the environment. It is a very agile animal and can easily climb trees. It is also a good swimmer and diver. It eats leaves and fruits. In 1995, the hunting and killing of the Yuwana were banned by the “Natuurbeschermingsverordening” (AB 1995 no. 2) legislation. Since then it is one of the various animals protected by law.
