Life in color – Green Iguana colors

Green Iguana colors, in fact, are not only all shades of green. The coloration varies from green to pale lavender, black and even pink. In the west of the Costa Rica, green iguana looks red, and in the more northern regions, such as Mexico, it is orange. In El Salvador, juveniles often appear bright blue, but their color changes significantly when the lizards are older. In ancient times, the inhabitants of the Maya believed that the world is located inside a huge house, and its walls are four giant iguanas, called by the Indians “Itzam”. Each iguana symbolized a certain side of the world and had its own special color. In the sky, the tails of iguanas converged forming a roof. The Mayan called this house Itzam Na, which literally means “iguana-house”.

In fact, the tea industry is one of the most lucrative businesses in China and in the whole world. And the green tea growing in the shade of pink trees – “Yunnan Green” is one of the best teas. Besides, such stunningly beautiful hills are in many rural areas of China.

The River of green color begins its flow in the western Wyoming going south to Utah, where it turns east to make a loop through the northwestern corner of Colorado. Turning south in Utah, it enters the Colorado river in Canyonlands National Park after a course of 730 mi (1,175 km).

There are several Holidays and traditions connected with the Green river, among them – Green River Rendezvous and Flaming Gorge Days.
