The Rhinoceros Iguana (Cyclura cornuta) is a large and robust Iguana Species that is a great species to keep and can become very tame in captivity but they require a large amount of space and very dedicated keeper. I would only recommend this species to the most advanced keepers and they definately require large outdoor cages of at least 3m x 2m x 2m. THey are a lovely species of iguana to keep and very unusual to see in captivity even today. They are native to the island of Hispaniola (which includes the nations of Haiti and the Dominican Republic) in the Caribbean Sea. They are complete Herbivorous and require a balanced and varied diet of veggies and fruits. They do very well outside and are so much easier to keep that way so I don't see why people would want to keep such an large species indoors unless they live in and exceptionally cold region of the world. A great species for advanced keepers and a lovely docile species.
