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 just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
is tape safe for fixing something in my leopard geckos hide?
Day 3 of brumation. It's a struggle. I really miss my little guy. 😔
