New female Cuban Rock Iguana!!!

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

Here's our new female! We got him from a guy who's been unemployed for a year. His reptiles have been living at a friends pet store for a while. We met at the pet store during a reptile club meeting and he met our female and male. We got a call the next day asking if we'd like to buy her. We've been very short of money but we couldn't pass her up!

I forgot to post the pics of the females together.

The new (smaller) one finally decided she was going to be dominant and stepped up on the others tail. I should have taken a pic but I wasn't sure what was going to happen next.

They don't climb much. But then they live in tanks at the moment.

They're very similar. Cuban grow much slower than Greens. If you get a Cuban you won't have a 5 foot monster in 2 years, it could take 10-15 years for a Cuban to get that big. But the Cubans get much thicker than Greens.

We also have a Cayman Blue/Cuban hybrid, who will be 1 year old next month. He's a total spaz, bounces off the walls when I walk by his tank. He's starting to lighten up and show the patterns on his back. I need to take some pics of him.

are iguanas like beardies when it comes to a life in solitude or can they be housed together?

They can be housed together if you have a lot of square footage for them, otherwise they will get territorial. Even if they get along, that could change at any time, especially during breeding season. Ours will always live separately.
