Hi all, I was wondering how much food Lenore should be eating. I've had her for 6 months now and she doesn't seem to be eating as much as I think she should be. I usually put 1 cup of mixed greens and veggies in her bowl in the morning.By evening there is still at least 1/2 a cup of food left.I even try to hand feed her but she doesn't want to take food from me.(with the exception of the other day when I had a dandelion flower).She was very anxious to take that from me. How much do you think she should be eating and is the 1/2 a cup that she is eating enough? Also, how many dandelion flowers should I let her eat? They seem to be her all time favorite. She has only had 3 flowers so far. Could it be that her food is too boring for her?Is there anything I could put on it to make it more appealing to her maybe? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks Karen
As long as her legs and tail are good and filled out she is probably getting enough to eat. You might try tearing up the dandelion flower and sprinkling it on her food along with some red colored fruit (watermelon, etc) Igs tend to gravitate toward reds and yellows in their diet.

Lewis is like 7-8 mos old. I fix him a plate of salad every morning and it is totally GONE!! I mean this is a salad I would make for myself, and I am a slob!! I have the opposite concern! I can't seem to feed Lewis enough, He'll eat things totally whole I bet if I put it in there like that!! He goes through so much food, and it's pricey too!! Iguanas can never be overfed, correct? As long as he'll eat, I should feed, right??
Karen, How big is Lenore now? Sorry, I have a difficult time keeping track of everyone. Does she seem to be picking out one type of food? I would let her have her fill of dandelions one day and see how many of them she can eat, then compare it to what she is eating normally.
