    tekknoschtev, I already have an juvenile iguana that is grown in a huge aquarium and in a warm weather ( Like now), I free-roam my ig.

    rattler_mt, I think you are right but it's worth to try after the discovery of way that eggs get shipped without yolks and things don't get mixed up.
    Boo!

    Ok, I was just curious. eventually I hope to have my ig free roaming. Right now, she's a bit to agressive and curious to be free roaming but i plan on working on that so she can be free roaming, and her cage will more or less be home base for her to sleep at night.

    How old is your current ig? Mine is about 3.5 years old. I get nervous about her at this time of the year - its egging season again.

    I don't know my igus age. I got it last September but despite the fact that the last iguana I grew measured about 50cm when it was an year old, I guess mine supposed to be around 2, not more than 3
    Boo!

    I have an 11 year old female iguana that is just under 5.5 ft. She spends all of her time on the screened porch, but I live in florida so the weather is fine for that. I had a male at one time, but the biting and cuts they inflicted on each other during the breeding season got to be too much, so one of them had to go. As for the eggs, I think shipping is definately out. I also raise tropical tortoises in my backyard (its a Fl thing) and have "killed" many eggs just by digging them out of the nest to put them in an incubator -yes I know they would hatch in the ground but we have that fire ant problem- and I'm very careful about keeping them in the same orientation and all, so I can only imagine what shipping would do to them.

    I was in Cozumel last year and saw wild iguanas all over the place. It was cool. They eat them there.

    i have bearded dragons eggs. Im serious but you couldnt ship them or a iguana egg. I had some iguana eggs and some turtles. I am a reptile breeder. the eggs have to be placed the exact position they are laid. Like the way the egg came out and is dug into the dirt is the way it goes.

    My male iguana is 3 feet about and just turned 4 years old

    My freind had one that died this winter that was a female about the same size. She died as binding of eggs. (had trouble laying eggs and eventually couldnt get them out) This was not known until she died. She laid 2 eggs but should off had 30.

    To tell you the truth we were really concerned with mine, and then one day, BAM, there were 38 eggs. Based on the size, I coudlnt believe that they all fit inside her. She's done it every year, and is starting to look a bit portly right now, so methinks its about time again.

    Didnt know about the eggs though (when attempting to hatch them). Always good to know, even if not breeding one, but for use(ful/less) information.
