Just wait until it's a 4', 12-pound Iguana who decides to leap onto your back while you are walking past the cage!
Talk about poop-painting your pants!
Rex has done this several times to me. He always figures out the few times that I am pre-occupied and not paying close attention. After I get done with my little freak trying to get the giant (imaginary) monster off my back (and so pissed that I did wear a shirt!), he just looks at me like Whaaaaat?
Another time I was preparing his greens and talking on the phone. Suddenly and without warning BOOM! I giant lizard sitting across my hands on the counter. I jumped, screamed and dropped the phone. The poor caller thought I was being murdered! LMAO. He didn't buy my: "My Iguana just jumped on me" story either! Hmph!
Times like these make Iguana ownership so exciting!

When I first let Bob free roam I made some pretty major changes to my room, one of which was get rid of my bed and put a couch in its place. I then put Bob's shelves over the back of the couch. Well for about a month straight I woke up to a 4 foot lizard jumping off his shelves onto my head at about 6:30am. I adapted to sleeping with my head under the pillow.
