I dont think it matters. Rostral spines, really long dorsal spines, heavy striping, red coloration in the face, "red iguanas", large dewlaps, grey heads, black eye masks, etc they are all Iguana iguana, just visual traits from different regions. there is no subspecies. The care is the same. It is interesting how they differ from one region to another. Maybe some day some academic will put in the work to determine that the different locales warrant their own species. I believe there are a couple of islands in the Carib doing studies. For right now all I. iguana
