Iguanas are the descendants of the ship's evolved lab iguanas. The evolved iguanas are scientifically known as Squamata sapiens.
Iguanas are generally skinny and slow humanoids. They have bug eyes and a zoned out expression most of the time. They are sloppy dressers, have big appetites and make terrible roommates. Some consider Iguanas slow manner and relaxed attitude a by-product of their penchant for wacky-weed and reggae music, but this connection has never been scientifically proven...not that anyone has bothered to try.
Iguanas are naturally adept climbers and enjoy exploring the unknown, but never seemed to be surprised by their findings.
When Iguanas do communicate, they are methodical and precise. They adhere to an economy of words, using the minimal amount necessary to get their point across.Yes and no questions are probably the best kind to ask of an Iguana with any hope of instant reply (and it will most always be punctuated with "mon" - in a West Indies accent). Otherwise, you might find yourself standing around a few minutes while the Iguana formulates his or her reply, tests it in his or her head, mouths the words silently, and then gives the opening night performance.
Society Iguanas are almost the human equivalent where slobbiness is concerned. When eating fruit, the table ends up looking like the atomic tests on Bikini Atoll. They don't concern themselves with other beings' standards of body odor - they consider theirs quite neutral and pleasant. Their living quarters are usually akin to a third world trailer park. They are never embarrassed, probably because they really don't care what anyone else thinks of them. When it comes to emotional displays, Iguanas give no indication of their feelings whatsoever, and will usually remain tight lipped and enigmatic unless they feel the situation is dire enough to warrant the sharing of personal information.
Iguanas Iguanas have no real religious background since they are sloppy and carefree.
As with all evolved species, Iguanas evolved from iguanas. Iguanas are the descendants of the ship's evolved Iguanas or Squamata sapiens and have set up shops all along the Red Dwarf's Promenade. The shops offer a variety of services such as dinning, pubs, game centers, clothing repair, trinket repair and resale shops. The Iguanas didn't keep very good history on their race since survival was their first concern until they were able to get a strong hold on the ships trade center. Once the Iguanas were established they had a strong period of growth before the crew began to awaken. However like the cats they left the ship before Lister awakened.
