The Lesser Antillean iguana is a large arboreal lizard endemic to the Lesser Antilles. It is one of three species of lizard of the genus Iguana and is in severe decline due to habitat destruction, introduced feral predators, hunting, and hybridization with its introduced sister species, the green iguana.

What is the life span of a Lesser Antillean iguana

15 years

As a non-native reptile and a close relative, they compete for food, dominance, breeding partners and territories; further restricting distribution and capability to live to an expected lifespan of 15 years.

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.
