Japalura Swinhonis iguanas (Siwenhaosi Panxi) is an endemic Taiwan species. The color of their backs is mainly yellow-brown, the rim of the mouth is white, and the back of the body is high. The males have distinctive manes and dewlaps; the yellow-green belts on both sides of the male's bodies are more distinctive than those of the females. A male iguana will show certain threatening moves, similar to human beings doing push-ups, when another male is sighteds. The animal's full length can reach 31cm, with two-thirds taken up by the tail. The Japalura Swinhonis is today the largest iguana in Taiwan.
These iguanas mostly rest in the periphery of the woods, the small paths next to groves, or on big tree trunks. They are diurnal animals, and mainly feed on insects or other small invertebrates.
