I'm sure there's nothing to be worried about, judging by the pics you posted he looks nice, healthy and alert. What do you mean by "walks like a cat"? If you're refering to the hatchet walk (puffs up and makes himself look taller while walking in a jerky way) or simply the intima-puff (simply puffing up while walking to make himself known)? The attitude is pretty normal for most males, sometimes even out of breeding season. A lot of the time it's based on territory, basically telling you "hey...this here area is mine see..." lol Silly creatures. If you need info on head bobs and what they mean heres a good place to start: www.niad.org/green-iguana-bobbing.html and here's a link to the green iguana society on the body language of an ig. www.greenigsociety.org/body.htm Do no worry, you're iguana sounds just fine.
