Iguanas - Reptiles - Behavior

It's not easy to tame Iguanas. They are difficult, frustrating, complicated, complex, potentially dangerous, and very expensive to keep. Untamed Iguanas always try to get away and may bite severely. But a well-socialized reptile is relaxed around strangers and likes being rubbed on the back or head.

A sick Iguana may avoid handling and will try to flee. An uninterested and passive Iguana is also the sign of a disease. Iguanas remember people very well, especially those who abuse them. Iguanas can be attached to their owners and allow training only if provided with excellent care and comfort.

Iguanas - Reptiles - Rescue

Iguanas gained great popularity as cute little dinosaur figures. But they cannot be a whim purchase and don't make an ideal pet. People don't take into consideration that these animals grow into 5-6 foot long creatures; they outgrow their aquariums; and they give their owner much trouble. For the first two years the aggressiveness of Iguanas doesn't show up, but then during 6 weeks of the breeding season, they become very aggressive. That's why Iguanas are the most dumped reptiles in the USA and around the world.

There are lots of abandoned Iguanas in rescue centers, which are usually euthanized. Efforts are taken to form a National rescue organization to cope with reptiles and relieve the burden on individuals. These creatures should be looked after and have a chance of being adopted.

Iguanas - Reptiles - Housing

The habitat for Iguanas should be rather spacious, at least three Iguana lengths long. Iguanas live in trees and prefer to climb and to be high. So make climbing branches and shelves for them. It's good to place plants in the cage, but don't use soil, just water. Don't use the substrate on the bottom of the cage that an Iguana can swallow. The easiest thing is newspaper. Iguanas can be free roamers when they are large enough so as to not get lost.
