Iguanas are herbivorous reptiles which can range from three to six feet in length, and inhabit tropical and desert biomes. They are one of the only reptiles mentioned in the Fallout universe.


Iguanas are one of the only known species of lizard fortunate enough to survive the Great War. Unfortunately for them, they are commonly hunted and eaten by people, most often as an iguana-on-a-stick meal, very much popularized by a man known as Iguana Bob Frazier (even if his meals are not always made of iguanas).


Iguanas are large lizards and range from an average of three to six feet in length. They are reptiles and as such they are cold blooded. Not much else is known of iguanas in the Fallout universe as they only feature as food.


  • A living iguana has yet to appear in any of the games within the Fallout series. However, many enemies in Fallout and Fallout 2 state "I'm gonna feed you to my pet iguana," implying not all iguanas are kept as food.
  • It is worth noting that their appearance in Fallout 3 is suspect, as iguanas are not native to the eastern United States, and most likely could not have existed in the wild at the time of the Great War. It is likely that they came from pet stores, as Herbert Dashwood notes on his terminal that radscorpions came from them too.
  • The iguana is one of the three reptiles that appear in Fallout 3 (dead or alive), the others being deathclaws and mirelurk kings.


Iguanas appear in Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas and Fallout Tactics. They are always dead and cooked, usually on a stick.
