I had an iguana for 8 years, he was my child!  He was over 4 feet and he retained his green color his whole life (it has to do with their diet).  If you EVER have questions about your pet, I'm your girl!  I also worked at Petco for two years, so I became the community iguana expert everyone would go to!  Then one day, my baby swallowed a penny behind my back.  Weeks later, it started to break down in his system and he stopped eating.  I took him to the vet to have it out, but he died two days after surgery because it was too late.  I cried through two of my college classes.  People shouldn't put them down, they are great pets!  They are so smart (mine was paper trained and used me as a ladder too!).  He always gave me kisses and used my body to keep warm.  He loved sitting on my boombox when it was playing, I think he could feel the beat.  Maybe they appreciate music.  They can become rather loyal too. He wouldn't eat much when I went out of town and someone else took care of him.  I feel so bad about what happened.  He was my pride and joy.   Embarrassed

I had a Madagascar hissing cockroach like that.

He'd hiss if he was scared, but he purred when I held him. He loved chocolate and cheese, even though he was supposed to be getting vegetables. (He had such cute little mandibles!) He seemed to like being stroked. He'd perch on my finger and just sit there, absolutely contented. He loved it when I rearranged his cage every few weeks, with new sand and new twigs and new cubbyholes. He was so much fun to show off, too. There is an elderly couple in our church who still asks how he's doing, even though he's been dead a few years. (A natural, legs-curled-up insect death, by the way. Nothing violent.)

I used to have awful nightmares about him, though; like he'd gotten loose and I couldn't find him and I knew someone was going to step on him. (A 3 or 4 inch long beetle can cause nightmares, I suppose.)

hey kris i had a wonderful male iguana just like you. he was so sweet. he loved to sleep on me and he got along well with my cats. they said that iguanas don't get along with cats but mine did. Cheesy i even got a pic of  him with my cat sitting on a speaker close together. if you would like to see the pic let me know.

 my iguana's name was draco. he was so nice and didn't have a temper at all until he started getting sick.  i eventallu found out that he was really sick so i had to put him to sleep. Cry i had him cremated and he sits up on top of my desk with his death certificate that i got from the pet hospital. i miss him terribly. he was so kind and loved to climb also.  he was never mean. he did bite me once when we first got him but that was because i was new to him and had my face so close to his that he got scared. plus the place was new to him too because he was used to the pet store. but he never attacked me after  that.

Iguanas?
I love iguana!  Especially with a really meaty marinara sauce delicious!  Its funny how when you suck it in real fast the tail slaps you on the face and leaves a tomato sauce mark

Ohhh wait maybe Im thinking of linguini.  

Never mind.

Yes that was good.  I was just trying to picture my iguana at first with his legs stringed up like a pig and an apple in his mouth. Grin

Hi Shannon,

Welcome to Christians Unite. I don't know very much about iguana's myself but if you keep checking back here maybe someone else here can answer your questions.
