Threatened Caribbean iguana born in Rotterdam zoo


This 8 September 2020 video from Blijdorp zoo in Rotterdam in the Netherlands says about itself, translated:

A highly endangered lesser Antillean iguana has hatched in Blijdorp Zoo, a memorable moment for the international breeding program in which Blijdorp plays an important role. On May 15, 2018, four young lesser Antillean iguanas came to Rotterdam from St. Eustatius island: two females and two males. … And now, more than two years later, the first young lizard has been born.

The youngster is about 25 centimeter long.
