What animals are iguanas afraid of?

Natural Enemies
Raccoons, fish, crows, vultures, feral pigs, and other predators dig up iguana nests and eat the eggs. Raccoons, snakes, hawks, owls, egrets, herons, cats, and dogs kill the majority of hatchling and juvenile iguanas. After young iguanas reach about two feet in length, they have fewer natural enemies.

Speaking of food, iguanas themselves are eaten by a variety of natural predators—hawks, owls, snakes—and humans.
