I would suggest:

http://www.anapsid.org/iguana/index.html
http://www.greenigsociety.org/
and the book "Iguanas for Dummies."

These 3 are considered the gold standard of green iguana care.

Yes if your using a mercury vapor bulb only use calcium without d3 and if your using the tubes with d3. Bigger is always better for iguanas cage and can't forget the size 5-6 feet. A lot of the sexually can be understanded by the shapes on the face and spikes on the back.
Basking should be between 90-95 and 75-80 for usually the cool end or bottom of the cage. Peas are a great staple veggie for them. Talk and gentle rub the belly and sides for a calm iguana. Talk with a loud voice if aggression is being show. The tail is ment to break off for nature but does not grow back the same and not as long as it was.
I can go on and on but my best advice is be careful. Everything about them is to survive in nature as a wild animal. A pet will take patience and a lot of time. I know iguanas like the back of my hand. Enjoy your iggy because they grow fast.

Mesh cages aren't a good cage for an iguana. Maintaining a constant temperature gradient is important and nearly impossible with mesh cages. And like you said being that they have long sharp claws it wouldn't take much to rip it apart. I got mine in a Cages By Design cage... best $2500 investment I ever made.

Exactly just thought newbies would of tried these cages. As stated on these these enclosures for use with juvenile iguanas. Zoomed mentioned this on box. Horse droppings if you ask me. Thanks for your comment!

I get that trying to sell products. But killing innocent creatures reptiles isn't right. But false information about most reptiles is everywhere. Reason a must research first before you make a buy. I like looking up things before I buy. Like is it worth it or going to cause more issues then its worth.
Reason I use newspaper and paper towels cheap and pretty much safe. I had a beardie try to eat paper towels. But hasn't done so anymore. I have the beardies that are trans and silks and a leatherback. They cost doubled then regular dragons. Care is a little different with two of them.

:( its been four months since my iguana died. I'm sorry I didn't say anything. I just don't like the thought of what happened. He was eaten by spiders but I don't know what kind. That is all I'm gonna say. I don't like talking about it.
