"Green Iguana," Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Green iguanas possess a row of spines along their backs and along their tails which helps to protect them from predators. Their whip-like tails can be used to deliver painful strikes and like many other lizards, when grabbed by the tail, the iguana can allow it to break, so it can escape and eventually regenerate a new one. In addition, iguanas have a well developed dewlap which helps regulate their body temperature. This dewlap is used in courtships and territorial displays.
