Information paper on invasive Green Iguanas and others

Not sure if this is the best place to post this, but that's what this forum is for, right?

See these links for a really nice species ID sheet for American Iguanas, and the latest info on invasive Green Iguanas, from IUCN (the International Union for the Conservation of Nature), .

This came across my desk because in Fiji (thanks to a single numb-nuts with a yacht full of pets he didn't keep properly secure) we now have an invasive population competing with our endemic Fiji Banded and Crested Iguanas. I often get asked what problems the new immigrants are causing, so it's nice to have a simple and well-explained document on hand.

Info on the problems caused by invasive iguanas:

Lots of other excellent stuff on genetics, husbandry, research and the status of the trade:
