Baby Iguana..

Not open for further replies.


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 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).

There is something wrong with my beardies left eye!! I included a picture where it shows what her right eye looks like then the others are what her left eye is. She always has it closed (as much as she can) and she finally opened it for a bit when i misted her. I don’t know what i could be doing wrong and it’s not from sand because she doesn’t have it in her cage.
