I just can't "like" these guys. Something so scary about them. :shock:

He is a nice color...but I don't think I would be able to live in a house with one....or 10, like you probably have. 8)

I have a friend, we call him Mad-dog because he is a bit crazy, he had all kinds of lizards, there is always a loose one crawling around...and the snakes OMG he has a mouse breeding project just to feed them...

But your lizard is cute :D

I am the only one who is nervous around these things? Or am I the only one admitting it? :(

Nope... they can be all colors. They are called the Common Green Iguana because that is their primary color but when breeding season comes they can change into their "breeding colors" to attract a mate. Depending on the reigon that they come from in Mexico and South America will affect their "breeding color." Carrots is orange

Gray Heads
Some iguanas, mainly those from some areas in Central America, have very gray, scaly looking heads and necks when they are mature. Their rostrums may be equipped with tiny horns or very pronounced knobs, and their bodies tend to be quite dark green. Many have stripes that are more blurred, or reticulated skin patterns. During breeding season, the heads and bodies of males can become covered with a rusty-colored wash, turning to deep, bright orange when they are excited (during courting and territorial displays).

Oh neat, thanks!

I've always thought they were really cool, those really big ones, but I just could never get over the whole reptile thing.

What are they like as pets?? How long do they live?

They make awesome pets as long as you are ok with having a 6-7ftx3ft enclosure in your house! :D They grow large and live about 15 years in captivity, sometimes longer depending on their start in life.

They are very social, can be tamed and even potty trained! They get along with all animals as long as their space is respected and they are left alone. Mine watch movies with me on the couch. :greenWave:

Finally, a voice of reason. :) Carrot is a nice name, and he is a nice color, but what does he DO all day, other than watch soap operas?

I love igunanas. My neighbor had one who was 5 1/2 feet long. He would sit on the couch with them and just roam around their house! I want one so bad! I will get one when I get my own house one day!
