Ok, I'm trying not to be too scared. I just took an iguana home from the humane society. He was abandoned when his family was evicted. My friend who works there contacted me right away, and I went to see him (not for sure, just easier to pick one pronoun). He's absolutely beautiful, very alert, and responsive. He comes over when I talk. He'd been there a few days and started eating today and pooping. He's a gorgeous lime green.

His tank is tiny, but it'll take us a few days to get the setup ready. This was a last-minute thing so we don't have a viv yet.

Wish us luck! I hope we're able to be good iggy parents. We have a 4-year old beardie, and he's been a joy. I hope this new guy will come to love us too.

I'd love to hear from some iggy lovers for support. Thanks!

I've started reading that site (and posting) before we got her.

Inca went to the vet this week and is in great shape. Her fecal came back clear too!

We're really enjoying her so much already.

We have a new reptile blog: lizardmom.wordpress.com to share their antics.

I bet Godzilla has been a handful if he's been in mating mode. We're probably a little luckier to have adopted a female, but the egg thing makes me nervous. I think we have another year or so before that may be an issue. The vet said some people have their igs spayed/neutered.

We're already loving our iguana and getting used to her. She's so lovely and has a lot of personality. Now that our bearded dragon, Aztec, seems to be slowing down to get ready for brumation, it's nice to have another lizard around.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
