2. Care And Feeding Of Iguanas
A basic care sheet from the Avian and Exotic Animal Hospital in San Diego, CA.
Care and Feeding of Iguanas By Christine Hancock Iguanas are one of the most popular reptiles purchased from pet shops today. This animal can grow anywhere from 4-6 feet in length, reaching a maximum weight of 10-15 pounds. On average, they live 12-15 years in captivity, however they can live up to 20 years if taken care of properly. Iguanas come from a hot and humid environment, therefore, they are more active during daylight hours. They can become territorial and will not hesitate to use their strong and powerful jaws, nails, or tail. Indoor Housing
A juvenile iguana can reside in a 30-50 gallon aquarium, however, their rapid growth will cause them to outgrow this enclosure within a few months. Enclosures come in many different sizes, shapes, and styles and are made out of wood, glass, or plexiglass. The substrate should be easy to clean to help you out. Newspaper works well and is most cost efficient, however, artificial grass, indoor-outdoor carpeting, or linoleum are excellent choices as well. Avoid sand, soil, and bark, as these substrates can lead to obstruction or impaction if your pet ingests them. Shallow food and water dishes should be provided, and thoroughly cleaned and disinfected at least twice a week. It is also important to provide your iguana with climbing materials such as branches, pieces of bark, rocks, broad limbs, or drift wood. Water
Iguanas need water to survive and should have it readily available. Iguanas obtain most of their water intake through the plant matter they consume, however, some iguanas enjoy drinking out of water dishes, or lapping water off leaves or wood in the cage. Misting your iguana and it’s environment daily will help keep it hydrated and provide it water droplets to drink. Some iguanas who are provided water dishes may train themselves to eliminate in their water. Their dishes need to be regularly and thoroughly cleaned and disinfected to prevent internal bacterial infections.

Green iguanas, Iguana iguana , occur throughout Central and South America, from Sinaloa and Veracruz, Mexico, south to the Tropic of Capricorn in Paraguay and southeast Brazil. This large lizard also inhabits many islands throughout the Caribbean region and the coastal eastern Pacific, and has been introduced into southern Florida and in Hawaii. This is the largest known lizard to occur within the borders of the United States (Conant and Collins, 1998; Campbell, 1998). Biogeographic Regions:

Green Iguanas are arboreal lizards that live high in the tree canopy. Juveniles establish areas lower in the canopies while older mature iguanas reside higher up. This tree dwelling habit allows them to bask in the sun, rarely coming down except when females dig burrows to lay eggs. Although preferring an arboreal (forested) environment, they can adjust well to a more open area. No matter where they inhabit, they prefer to have water around as they are excellent swimmers and will dive beneath the water to avoid predators (Conant and Collins 1998).

Heating Proper temperatures are extremely important for the well-being of the Green Iguana. Iguanas require a basking temperature of 95 degrees F for proper digestion of food. That said, the rest of the tank/cage should cool off to the mid 70's to 80 degrees F, creating a thermal gradiant. The entire cage should not be in the 90s or the iguana will get stressed. There are a variety of heating devices out there. See my Heating page for a more detailed description.

    9. Marine Iguanas
    Overview of marine iguana habitats, feeding patterns, and behavior.
    Marine Iguanas
    Iguanas seem to prefer rocky shore but may also be found in mangrove swamps and beaches. The males are always more brightly colored than the females, with hues of red and green on their backs. As is the case for many other Galapagos fauna, different races or subspecies may be found on different islands. In the case of the marine iguana, differences between race are most apparent in their coloration, particularly of the males. For example, green colors dominate on the Santiago iguanas whereas red dominate on the Española race. Females are generally dark gray to black. The faces of both sexes often appear light colored. This is not coloration at all, but is an encrustation that comes from their curious habit of sneezing salt. This is part of the unique adaptions that have evolved that allow these descendents of terrestrial ancestors to live in salt water. A gland connected to the notrils removes salt from the body, which is then expelled by "sneezing". Large males assemble "harems" of several females and guard the harem against intrusion by other males. Head bobbing is a threat jesture that warns other males (and sometime humans) to stay clear. Fights occasionally occur between males. These are quite harmless and consist of a contest in which the two males put their heads together and attempt to push their opponent backward. The looser retreats without further fuss. Iguanas, like the other species unique to the Galapagos, have evolved in an environment in which there are few natural predators. Thus they have few defenses against introduced animals, such as rats that prey on the eggs, cats that prey on young, and dogs that prey on even the adults. These feral animals are steadily reducing the iguana population in many localties. In areas such as Academy Bay and Volcan Ecuador, marine iguanas remain abundant (though notably less so than 20 years ago), but all the individuals are mature adults as few young survive the predation by ferel cats. Thus it appears that population is not being replaced and they may well disappear if nothing is done. Fernandina remains free from feral animals and here, along with many smaller islets, one may observe healthy and thriving populations.

    Natural History Green iguanas ( Iguana iguana ) are large semi-arboreal to arboreal lizards of the primarily New World Americas. They are almost an exclusively herbivorous reptile. Earlier beliefs were that the juveniles were insectivores, and then gradually grew into herbivorous adults. However recent studies on stomach content in wild iguanas have revealed that this is not the case. Iguanas are born herbivores and do not go through an ontogenetic shift from insectivore to herbivore. The digestive system is therefore designed to digest plant materials and not, as some recommend, to digest meat in any amount. The green iguana has evolved an elaborate hindgut, housing a microbial fermentation system that allows it to utilize fiber as effectively as mammalian ruminants. The adult iguanas spend most of their time in the upper parts of the trees, while the juveniles are either on the ground or in the lower parts of the trees and bushes. Due to the iguana's habitat, its wild diet consists of a variety of leaves, small fruits and flowers - and this variety should be provided in captivity as well. It may sound easy to provide a varied diet for the captive iguana, however the diet must also be a nutritiously balanced and healthy diet and this is why the iguana owner needs to learn some basic guidelines for making a proper Iguana-salad.

    Liz sat at a table in the student union enjoying a cup of coffee and flipping nonchalantly through her vertebrate biology textbook. She had a paper due in two weeks and still had not decided on a topic. Her instructor focused mainly on taxonomy and anatomy in class, but Liz was more interested in ecology. Her friend Abby, carrying a tray with an enormous cinnamon roll, sat down across the table.
  • Using the map and the minimal knowledge that Liz has at this point, propose three different hypotheses regarding the sudden high mortality of marine iguanas. Wait for a class discussion before proceeding to the next question. After seeing hypotheses from all groups, choose the hypothesis that seems most likely to your group and determine what evidence you would need to support (or refute) it.

    Galapagos Iguanas
    Iguana is the common name for a large "New World" lizard. "Iguana" a Spanish word of Indian origin also serves as the scientific name for the family. Iguanas are diurnal. They have distinctive eyelids, external eardrums, dewlaps (throat pouches), each limb has 5 toes with sharp claws allowing them to climb. Unlike most lizards, Iguanas are vegetarians. The Galapagos Islands are home to Marine Iguanas Land Iguanas and a Hybrid mix of the whose father's are Marine Iguanas and mother's are Land Iguanas
    Marine Iguana (Amblyrhynchus Cristatus
    Growing to approximately 3 ft (1 m) in length these sea-going Iguanas exist only in the Galapagos Islands. Living on the black lava shore rocks they have developed into efficient swimmers feeding off shore mostly on marine algae and seaweed. The cold waters of the Galapagos provide both the necessary food for the Marine Iguanas and its most deadly threats. The cold temperatures can immobilize an iguana if it remains in the water too long. Until the arrival of man, Marine Iguanas only threats were that of larger fish and sharks encountered while swimming.

    Tools Related Articles Web Links Galápagos iguanas may not be able to communicate amongst themselves, but it seems they can still catch the drift of mockingbird conversations. A new study shows that the island lizards – needfully wary of predators – often run to a sheltered location upon hearing alarm calls produced by mockingbirds. Researchers say that eavesdropping must offer a huge survival advantage to the iguanas, who cannot pass warnings between themselves. Ecologist Maren Vitousek at Princeton University in New Jersey, US, who carried out the study, adds that the finding "suggests that the transfer of information [between] species may be a much more widespread phenomenon than was previously assumed".

    West Indian Rock Iguanas
    By: Rick Hudson
    The West Indian rock iguanas, Cyclura spp. , are a group of large, ground dwelling, herbivorous lizards that inhabit Caribbean islands throughout the Greater Antilles and the Bahamas. There are eight species with a total of 16 recognized taxa, including subspecies. Rock iguanas inhabit fragile ecosystems and most have suffered greatly over the years because of man's activities and introduced animals. All 16 taxa are currently protected under Appendix I of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES); three are listed as endangered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the rest are listed as threatened. A more accurate assessment of the state of the iguanas is their classification under the new International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) categories; IUCN has recently classified all but four taxa as either critical or endangered. Today, West Indian rock iguanas are recognized as the world's most endangered group of lizards, with several species verging on extinction. Zoos have long been concerned with the plight of these impressive dinosaur-like lizards. However, only recently has a coordinated effort been made to protect rock iguanas.

    20. Feeding An Iguana Properly Is Easy!
    iguanas are herbivores or folivores, which means that they are plant eaters. They eat leafy greens, fruit, and fresh, uncooked vegetables that are grated
    Iguanas are herbivores or folivores, which means that they are plant eaters. They eat leafy greens, fruit, and fresh, uncooked vegetables that are grated and chopped to a size appropriate to the size and age of the iguana.
    Watch the size of the food chunks you feed to your iguana. Think about the size of your pet's stomach and how much more food he can get in there if it's in small bits. Grated food is best but if you chop, chop into tiny, bite-sized pieces. Leafy greens can be torn into the appropriate size. And you can grow greens in your garden for your iguana. Growing Great Greens
    And, speaking of leafy greens, IGUANAS DO NOT EAT LETTUCE. One of the worst myths left over from the fifties is that turtles and iguanas can survive eating iceberg lettuce. There is no nutritional value in such a pale, watery vegetable. Likewise, commercial iguana foods. Commercial diets for iguanas are not recommended.
    Give your iguana protein in the form of vegetable protein like peas, green beans, alfalfa, and very occasionally, tofu or scrambled egg. No matter what you have been told, the experts agree that iguanas should not get their protein from dog or cat food. Do NOT feed your iguana dog food. It is the wrong kind of protein and can cause metabolic changes in your iguanas organs that will eventually be life-threatening.
