The Eastern casquehead iguana, Laemanctus longipes, inhabits tropical rainforests from southern Mexico to Honduras in Central America. It spends most of its time clinging to thin branches, climbing down to the ground only in pursuit of prey or to bury eggs.

This lizard reaches a total maximum length of 70cm, but three-quarters of the length is tail. The body is laterally flattened and the head is triangular. The legs and toes are extremely long and thin and well adapted to the arboreal lifestyle of the species. They need a large arboreal enclosure with relatively high humidity and light levels and good basking spot of 30 to 35C. Despite being an iguanid they are completely insectivorous.
