Hey guys I'm a new iguana owner and my iguana recently broke her toe. It's so bad that I can see the bone sticking out and it's obviously dead now. Unfortunately I don't know what to do. Do I leave it alone and let her lose it on her own or what?

Hi there! That toe sounds painful, you should definitely consult a vet. Leaving the toe as it is could lead to infection and even more issues than just a broken toe. She is more than likely going to need antibiotics and the vet might wrap it up or even do a partial amputation if needed. When it comes to bones sticking out with any animal a vet is the best option. I hope she does alright and isn't in as much pain soon. They are really good at hiding their pain and illness, I hope she gets healed up soon.
If only I had something to eat. . . . . mmmm pumpkin flowers
