We've been asked to consider adopting a homeless iguana (his family was evicted). He's 2 feet long. I'm going to meet him later today to see how he's doing. If we can take him (if the owners don't return), we'd have to do so quickly.
My question: what can we do for a temporary home for this little guy (or girl) until we can get the new home built? It'll probably take us a few weeks.
We'll be building an enclosure, and I've been researching here and other places for good ideas and all the other factors. We have a bearded dragon and homemade enclosure, so we're familiar with the concept. I know that they have different needs for size, humidity, etc., but we are comfortable with MVB, feeding, knowing we have to maintain temps, etc. We are lizard lovers and want to provide the best homes we can!
Thank you in advance! I'll post photos when/if this happens. I look forward to getting to know you and your green friends!
2' as in snout to tail tip I would assume!! So that could mean, he is still small and has had no tail loss or hes is an adult with tail loss. Do you know which it is.. Age wise that is! Personaly I would not put them in anthing less than a 55 gallon viv for a young one and no less than 3' x 4' x '4 for a juvie to sub adult..even at that I would kinda hurry on the building of the bigger one. No less then 7 x 5 x 5.
Good luck on your rescue!! Good for you.. We want pictures you know!
I haven't seen him/her yet to know. I've only heard 2', but I don't know if that's snout-tail or snout-vent length. I was supposed to meet the little guy today, but the caretaker isn't available. I should know what's happening in a few days.
We plan on building a bigger enclosure quickly, but it'll probably take us a few weeks.
