    My new buddy :3





    My new green iguana!

    I'm working on purchasing or making a permanent enclosure for him soon, as he will outgrow his tank in a matter of months, if not weeks XD

    I've been told that they tend to bond with 1 person, even if they are part of a family.
    I used to babysit an iguana, she was such a sweetie.

    SHE being the operative word. Males usually become mean ******** at sexual maturity. There's a reason these guys required dedicated sanctuaries in the 90's.

    Still, they can be great, rewarding pets with the right care and considerations. Good luck and have a long, wonderful relationship with your new scaly friend Don't be surprised if he's still kicking in 20-30 years. Reports of their life span are grossly underestimated. We had a tagged individual in Panama that was tagged as a battle seasoned adult in the early 80's. Last I heard he's still at it.

    Remember to watch the tail! That thing is way more powerful than you'd think :P

    Yeah, a tail-whipping can hurt like a mother -- even draw blood in the case of an adult iggie. Hope you and yours have many happy years together.
