The Fiji Crested Iguana (Brachylophus vitiensis) is very rare. It lives only on Yaduataba Island in Fiji, which is in the southern part of the Pacific Ocean. It eats plants, mostly the Vau tree. The Fiji Crested Iguana is becoming endangered because of deforestation caused by goats eating the Vau tree. Female Crested Iguanas are green, while males are blue-green with lighter cross-bands. Crested Iguanas can reach a length of 35 inches and have crest spines on their backs.
