Iguanas Need Love Too

All my children are animal lovers but my daughter is the personification as the biggest animal lover I have known because of her love for all types, including reptiles. She once had a pair of Green Iguanas named George and Georgina. They were inseparable, which is rare for Iguanas as they are loners in the wild except to mate. They were easy to care for as they ate mostly lettuce and other leafy vegetables. They had a cage but my daughter would always let them roam around so she could watch them climb up walls. One thing we learned was that you shouldn’t mix cats with lizards, especially lizards that run free. Our cat would watch them for hours and pounce on them every chance he got but he never hurt them so they lived to be around five years old. George and Georgina would occasionally get into fights like any other couple so we would have to separate them. They can bite you if they feel threatened so beware.

I recommend:

100-Pack Frozen Rat Pinkies

It doesn't easily spill and they always have water.
