Just wanted to say hi to you all and say thanks for what I've learned here already. Me and my GF are proud new owners of our first Ig.. ;D Just got s/he today from a friend that doesnt have the room anymore to keep he/r anymore. We are current anole owners also, and wanted to make the move up in size and more hands on pet, just didnt plan on making the iggy jump this quick..lol But very happy it happened!! Im sure in the days to come ill be asking alot of the novice questions and/or prefs on different things. Wanna make sure to have a healthy and happy ig, and with what i see from you guys that should be easy. K nuff rambling for now... sure ill have pics and all prob tomm. (and sure a few questions also..lol )
Hi Brujah! Great to hear of another ig adopted by an owner willing to put forth the effort to learn proper care. These guys can be complicated, but it's well worth it! Have you been to the "Iguana Care" section? I've tried to condense and simplify the basics there. I hope we can be a help to you. Congrats on your new family member. :-)
First of all ty for the welcome, 2nd ty Tesa for the site..learned alot already. As for pics I should be able to take some this afternoon, got some running around to do for supplies. As for Jade (iggy) she is around 3 1/2 foot..(dont know all the proper lingo yet...lol ) and looks to be in good health..The old owners were a little misinformed on a few things, But she's in a 6ftTx4ftWx2ftD cage but its a wire mesh cage (which i will be building a new castle in the near future). She seems to be adjusting ok...gotta get the lighting set up right..but she was up moving around and exploring this morning(this is the cage she was in so I'm sure that helps her feel a little more comfy..) OK I'm rambling again..lol just a little excited about her still.. ;D sure I'll have a few by this afternoon...so ty for the welcome and talk to you all soon...byeee
Actually it's really funny because I always said I really didn't want anything bigger than the anoles. All of a sudden I have someone asking me to take their iguana, I was a little hesitant, Blain was super excited. Needless to say that little bugger has managed to wiggle her way into my heart in a big way in a small amount of time. I absolutely adore her.
I'm jealous today he's at home spending time with her and I'm stuck at work. Guess I'll just have to get in some extra time when I get home
