Mona Ground Iguanas are diurnal and spend most of the day basking in the Sun conserving energy. Mona Ground Iguanas are endemic to Mona Island, Puerto Rico. They are scattered through the entire island, though the Southwest part of the island is only used during the nesting season. They live a considerable portion of their lives underground, and are usually found in talus slopes, caves and sinkhole depressions. The average depth underground that they can be found is 1.5 metres.
