Desert iguanas (Dipsosaurus dorsalis) can be found at Red Rock Canyon during the daytime hustling in between creosote bushes. These lizards reach a length of 6 inches and feature spots on their body, a banded tail, and a line of spiny scales down the middle of their back. Desert iguanas feed on mostly plant materials but also can eat insects. You can see how well they blend into the background; this is their main mode of defense.
