Yes I can imagine being bitten by him. He is the same size as Bob and looks much the same.
One week after the bite it is healed up and just a small scab. I put hydrogen peroxide on it last night and it would not even bubble for me, all the fun is gone, maybe I should cut myself again I find it that cool to watch.
I am still taking Bob out for a few hours a day and it was the last week of classes so everything was due. Now I just have three finals to contend with Monday (1) and Tuesday (2).
I would love a fenced in area of a yard that is iguana safe so I could put him down to walk while I sit in the lawn and work. I am starting to think about building a low fence to surround a garden of ig safe plants -- maybe a shrub or low tree in the center to climb on but not too high or get out of the fence. The bottom of the fence would have to be submerged into the soil a few inches and built out of something that he can't slip through or climb possibly some of the composite or pvc fencing material. Ahh its just a dream that can't de done for a few years but it would be easy to do.
I put an extension on Thrasher's leash making it about 12 feet long, then drove a stake into the ground and tethered her. I still stay outside with her at all times, but it leaves my hands free to do something else while she wanders around a bit.

Aw hes gorgeous, what a beast! Looks like a nice place for an ig to live too Love his blueish peeley belly, looks like hes got sleeves!
Mark: I do the hydrogen peroxide thing too!! I use it to clean piercings (sorry guys I do nothig for the "all reptile owners are covered in tattoos and piercings" thing!) and its great if youve got a scratch, fizzy skin lol!
I'll have to try that staked tether tomorrow. There is a large open area that is great for Bob, where I have been letting him down. If I place it correctly I can give him about a thirty foot radius. No trees or holes and it is out of the way so very little traffic plus he is used to it.
Well I was just joking about cutting my self again but I did it anyway. I got a little careless cleaning the gutters today and found out why my dad always warned me to be careful: the lip on cheap gutters actually is sharp. Oh well, bubbles!
Could we get some more pics of Mr Worf’s room, I know some are on the tower network page but I am designing a new cage and am interested in more furnishing ideas.
