I have a 18 month old iguana that recently started developing swelling in his hemipenal gland, he is showing all the classic indications of being in mating season, but today I found a clear thick fluid hanging from his basking stick that could only be described as siemen? Is that what this is? What else can it be? I will post a picture of his hemipenal gland and hopefully someone can help me with this...

Well that is possible. He is also going to leave a waxy substance from his pores, called plugs, here and there as he goes through his season. Here is a link to another post relating to your questions about males in season tesa.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=sexing&action=display&thread=3593 He is probably going to get really moody so be prepared Some iguanas handle it better than others - I hope he does well
If only I had something to eat. . . . . mmmm pumpkin flowers
