I didn't know where to put this so please move if im in the wrong place.
Ok so I work at at a grocery store and last night we got in a fruit shipment from Mexico.. Well one of the overnight stickers found a little green iguana inside! I'm close with my manager and he took the lizard home and gave it to me this morning. He is so cool! I love him already. He is extremely sweet considering he was wild. Here are some pictures and I plan to keep this thread up to date with new pics every few days.





Hope you all enjoy!

I accidentally put a picture twice.

Thanks! He sure is a spunky little thing. He was probably freaked. Went from eating fruit in some mexican tree on a farm, to a store, to a house, to my house in a big cage full of plants and unlimited food! What a life. haha

Congrats Jarett on your new baby! Poor little guy must've been so scared being transported from the comforts of home to an alien world -- but he sure looked like he settled in with you rather well. Loved the snuggle pic :p


i can just imagine the iguana before getting shipped... im gonna eat some bananas then get stuck in an unlimited food box then go to a farm for a day then go to someones grocery store and then get caught eating in the box then find a nice home and live the rest of this life of mine and maybe raise a family. see mom. its all planned out

haha thats it exactly! Except, Juanito will not be raising a family. There are enough baby igs in the world without homes!


i agree. often they are inbred and they are born with stunted bodies and limbs. then people cannot feed and care for them and they die

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?
