Desert Iguana

Dipsosaurus dorsalis

They are herbivorous and feed upon annual flowers, weeds, leaves, and cactus fruit. They prefer to stay near creosote bushes as they use them for protection from the scorching summer sun by burrowing into their root systems; eating their flowers during the rainy season; and climbing up in their branches to get a protected basking spot.
