    Hello.
    I'm looking for an egg (must be fertile) of a green iguana. I'm only looking for few of them.
    Please PM me if you are interested.
    Thanks.
    Boo!

    Sorry, i'm fresh out of fertile green iguana eggs.
    LOL, I couldn't resist. Sorry.
    That is an odd request. I'm curious why you want an egg and not a live iguana?

    cant ship a live reptile egg...........atleast not if you want it alive when it gets to you. there is EXTREAMLY few ppl captive breeding green iguanas, takes to much room and imports are to cheap for there to be any money in it. those who do it are doing it cause they love working with the animals and arent likely to ship a live egg.

    back2eight, it's okay I already have a live iguana who's fairly young.

    rattler_mt, I just want to try hatch an egg, so I can have more company and what I thought about shipping is you know chicken eggs that are freely produced from farm often hatches, and they sell those eggs in market labeled "organic" ; definetely, they are shipped from farm So I thought I'll try iguana because I know some people who hatched chicks from egges from shops.
    Boo!

    reptile eggs and bird eggs are two different situations. reptile eggs shouldnt be moved very much or the yolk will roll over on the embryo sufficating it. chicken eggs arent built the same. plus its alot easier to hatch a chicken than most lizards. chicken eggs are MUCH hardier

    i can understand what you trying to do but it aint going to work, i highly doubt you would even be able to find an egg let alone talk someone into shipping it to yah

    Just out of curiosity - how much room do you have?! I've got a 4-5' green iguana who lays eggs annually (much to my vet's dismay I must add though after quite a bit of reading, spaying her really isnt an option) and she's going to be moving into an 8x4x6 enclosure (while I'm at college) and afterwards when I move into my own house, she'll be getting her own room.

    I cant even fathom raising baby igs, because they grow so quickly! Not that I'm criticizing, I've often though about finding a male to breed with her, but I also looked into the possibility of finding suitable homes for the babies, and at least where I'm at, not many people who want iguanas have the proper setup for them and think that a 55 will be fine for the iguanas life
