Femoral Pores in Green Iguanas
©1997 Melissa Kaplan
Female femoral pores begin to differentiate from male pores around 12 months of age, or 8" snout-vent length.
On the female, only the first 3-5 pores closest to the vent will be slightly enlarged. The rest will remain grayish pin points.
In male iguanas, all the femoral pores will be enlarged, including the ones closest to the knee, although the ones near the knee will be smaller than the ones closest to the hip.
