I checked adoption page on Green iguana society. My hart is bleeding There is so many iggy s . Well it s better puting them to adoption, then letting them suffer.I m so happy that having an ig in our country is rare and exotic.In my town i m the only one ig owner. But i went in some pet store in our capital, few weeks ago and i saw adult iggy in bad conditions (small, to cold aquarium, bowl with lettuce choped in)I tried to talk to the sales man(i was nice), but he refuse me, that iggy isnt dead yet.I become rude, but it didnt work either.Our law s about animals worth s**it.That iggy is not for sale-just for watching. I write a post to store maneger, but i know he ll wipe his a** with it. Anyway, i m big girl, but when it s come to iggy s i m soft like a butter.

Ursula...the laws here are just as bad in many areas of the country. There are no laws concerning how a pet stores should cage their animals because they are only in temporary selling cages. The only requirement is that there is food and water.
I wish there was some sort of licensing and/or cetification on proper knowledge and care requirements for pet stores regarding each type of pet they sell...and basic literature handouts required per those beasties.

Des... I didn't know about that law. I know that one of my local stores provides handouts, but I'm not too sure about the other one. I've started going in there on a regular basis... I really want to build a relationship with the owners so I can help them make some changes to their ig care routine.
