Has anyone on here ever had or does have an iguana.  I do! His name is Guanie.  I know that the name is not that original, but I think that he will forgive me.  I love him.  He is a good baby boy lizard. If you bob your head at him he will bob his head back and puff himself up to make himself look big.  

One time when I was cleaning out his cage I put him in the bathroom.  He climbed the drapes and was sitting at the top of them.  My mom came in the bathroom not seeing the iguana.  When she looked up she saw him and started screaming.

No one wants to talk about iguanas. Cry  Ya'll like cats and dogs. Or has no body ever owned one?  Or it could be that your not interested, or they're scary or something?

Kriss777,

 Cheesy  I only met an iguana once, up close and personal. I was still in police work, and it was on a home burglar alarm in the middle of the night. We were quietly checking the house and about to move into the bedrooms to check them. This was a first alarm for this house, so we thought it might be a good alarm with someone in the house.

The living room only had the light of a large aquarium, and their appeared to be a large stuffed or ceramic lizard on top of it. I was over 4 feet long and was completely motionless. I was edging my way to a dark hallway with my left shoulder next to the aquarium when the tongue shot out and the ceramic lizard jumped at me.   Grin  Needless to say, I almost jumped out of my skin, nearly shot it, and made enough noise to make the other officers checking the house angry at me. We cleared the house and didn't find any burglar, so everyone had a huge laugh at my expense.   Grin

That's all I know about iguanas, so I really don't know if I like them or not.   Grin

Love In Christ,
Tom

LOL, BEP that is so funny.  Yes they will do that.  He was just checking you out.  They like to explore.  Mine sometimes decides that he doesn't want in his cage anymore and then scratches to get out.  Then when I open the door he jumps on me and uses me as a latter to get down.

Kris777,

 Grin  It ought to be against the law for them to remain motionless so long that someone things they are ceramic. As it turns out, he was sitting on top of the aquarium to soak up the heat and stay cozy. I would be curious about them as a pet, but my wife would move if I brought one home.  Cheesy  She is scared to death of all reptiles. I think that the fear factor of most people is due to a complete void of knowing about reptiles. I have looked at them in pet shops, but I've never touched an iguana on purpose. I'm sure that a lot of the fear is unfounded.

The owners of the house laughed themselves silly when they returned home quickly after the alarm company called them. They even sent a thank you note to the police chief. Then, the police chief laughed himself silly.

Love In Christ,
Tom

They generally don't make very good pets.  They can have an attitude and demand alot of special care.  I'm very lucky because my iguana is a sweet heart and is a male.  For iguanas the male is the cranky one, not the female for a change. Grin  So I am blessed with a laid back male iguana.





Look BEP a few of your buddies! Grin

Poor Tom Cheesy (hehe)

I took Guanie to the vet on Friday because he had an infection.  Boy getting him in the car and get him to set still for 20 mins was not easy.  I had to tie his harness to the chair and keep one eye on him when I was driving because once in awhile he would try to escape.

Then at home when I went to soak him and put the medicine on him he decided that he didn't like what I was doing.  He started head bobing and I tried to calm him down.  I thought that he was settled down so I went back to putting on the medicine.  Very quickly he bit me on the arm just to let me know that he still didn't like it.

Iguanas can be little buggers.

Willowbirch,

Sister, it's nice to hear from you. How are you doing?

Do you know about the sound that a time-clock makes? I'm talking about the type that employees use to clock in and out. I almost shot one of those one night also.   Grin

Sister Kris,

Now is a good time to ask. Don't those big iguanas have teeth? Would they be one of those animals that the crock hunter might say, "You'd like to bite me arm off, wouldn't you mate?"

Yes Tom, Iguanas have teeth. Very, very sharp little pointy, needle like teeth that hurt when they bite.  You wise guy. Roll Eyes Wink

Sister Kris,

 Cheesy  I did manage 25 years without a firearms incident of any type. I can't say the same for many officers I know. There are just too many wild and weird things that happen in police work. All kinds of animals are involved in the wild and weird, but nothing can get as wild and weird as a human.   Cheesy  I know that I would have preferred the iguana over many people I dealt with.

Love In Christ,
Tom
