Rhino Iguana yay or nay?

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

Im thinking about getting a Rhino Iguana it's just in the back of my mind at the moment since I know they require alot of space, but does anyone have good experience with owning one? I plan on getting a baby(not sure where to look, any ideas?) so I can tame it by the time it's BIG, so jsut wanted to know if anyone with a Rhino Iguana can list any downfalls to owning one beside that they require alot of space,thanks!

Rhino's are great.Males tend to be a tad more aggressive later but not nearly as bad as green iggy's.Females are much more docile and both are just sweet as can be as babies and juvies.I say go for it as long as you have the room!

Hmmmm it's tempting, I would like a baby but since you put it that way I would want a female but then I think I read you cant sex them till after 2 years or something. Could be wrong havent done all my research I just know the "vegetarian" part is a plus for me!My other concern is if i'll be able to keep the same attention as I do with the 2 beardies I already have. Like I said undecided but really tempting I did look up pricing on Fuana Classifieds havent tried Kingsnake yet but would rather get him locally which my best bet would have been at the Anaheim reptile show that just passed up lol!

Well thanks for the response!

Yes I know how tempting it is.The only reason I dont have one is that I have a dog and cat and not so worried about the dog but I am not sure how the cat would react with an Iggy roaming the house especially if he tail whipped her! :wink:
Listen the boy/girl thing is just an FYI that doesnt mean you cant get a male.As a matter of fact my favorite rhino was a little boy named Frankie who is know owned by a member here but I was a friend of the previous owner and used to go hang out with Frankie all the time.Actually if you put Frankie in the search you should come up with a thread or two on him.It is very hard to tell sometimes when they are young but most good breeders can at least give a strong possibility of sex and I do recommend if you get one you go with a baby so you can start fresh and bond.
