According to Fiji Times Online, a new creature was discovered earlier this month on the islands of Taveuni and Qamea in Fiji.
The islanders thought that the newly discovered iguana would be a threat to the other indigenous species there, however it has been determined by the head Chief Veterinary Officer (Dr. Robin Archari) that this new species is a herbivore.

According to sources the iguana was “introduced by this foreigner who constructed ponds with the intention of breeding more. He brought in two iguanas and they’ve multiplied to about 1000.”
