This is a larger, older individual, and the bright red/orange in the background is from a couple of out-of-focus Sally Lightfoot Crabs. We were just amazed at how many of these iguanas there were in many locations, incredibly well-camouflaged against the lava rocks, and each other. We really had to be careful to avoid stepping on them as we walked about.
