Baby Iguana..

Postby Cee » Fri Jun 25, 2010 12:17 pm


I just recently rescued a baby iguana and it was in bad and i mean really bad shape. It doesnt have a tail anymore, It is super skinny, which leads me to my question, I was wondering if you could tell me what could help fatten her up, she is very skinny when i hold her i can Literally[b][/b] feel her bones. I would appreciate any of the help!! :D

From what I've been looking into, first make sure the husbandry is in good shape, and a vet check for any infestations.

Once everything from health and husbandry is green, the little pooper should eat rather voraciously, and will rapidly fill out .

Just don't give lettuce (which you already know I'm sure), and no protein (though some say 1-3% is ok, but I wouldn't risk it).
