22. The Green Iguana
Many improperly fed iguanas will develop metabolic bone disease, or nutritional secondary hypoparathyroidism.
The Green Iguana
The green iguana, scientific name Iguana iguana , continues to remain one of the most popular pet lizards in this country today. Over a half million hatchling green iguanas are imported into this country every year, most of which are captive bred in El Salvador. It's easy to see the appeal of these handsome lizards. They are beautifully colored, with a stately ridge of dorsal spines and large, expressive eyes. People that like lizards but find feeding live food distasteful like that green iguanas are vegetarians. It tickles me to see iguana owners carrying a harnessed green iguana riding on the shoulder like a parrot. To me this truly signifies the attachment that an owner has to his pet iguana. Other lizard species may be somewhat high strung and unhappy about being handled, however, the green iguana often seems to really enjoy human interaction, and will often seek out human companionship for a bit of attention. Some iguanas like being scratched, some prefer gentle stroking on the head or on the dewlap, and others really seem to enjoy having dead, shed skin picked off from around the dorsal spines. (Please note that helping an iguana shed can be dangerous, as too vigorous of picking may remove or damage the live skin layer underneath the dead tissue, so this should only be carefully performed). Because the green iguana seems to often enjoy interaction with its keeper, the bond that develops is often a strong one. Since I am a vet who works on iguanas, and I keep and breed them, I have had the privilege of knowing many fine pet iguanas. I also have a large enclosure for housing my iguanas outdoors during the majority of the year, since I live in Florida. One large male iguana that I acquired ten years ago, Bwana, is very tame and will accept food from any visitor's hand. One outdoor pen is used for breeding my pair, and I only pair them up during breeding season, which begins in April or May here in Florida.

Genetic Differences The predominant color of green iguanas is green, but can actually range from brilliant green to a pale blue-gray. There are genetic variations in the color of iguanas. Some can appear more brown in color, while others are almost a turquoise blue. Recently, albino iguanas have been bred in captivity. One strain of green iguana from South America has a reddish cast to the head. Age Differences Young iguanas are generally brighter green or blue with some dark brown striping on the body and tail. The striping pattern of some actually results in a reticulated pattern. This coloring helps to camouflage them as they live among the bright leaves in their natural habitat. As they age, the green color becomes less intense. The dark patterns, striping, or banding on their bodies and tails become more intense as the iguana reaches approximately 18 months of age. The heads of older iguanas tend to be paler, appearing gray or almost white, as seen in the iguana on the left.

25. Care Of Green Iguanas
The green (or common) iguana (Iguana iguana) is an arboreal (treeliving) and diurnal (daylight-active) lizard usually found at elevations below 3000 feet
The green (or common) iguana (Iguana iguana) is an arboreal (tree-living) and diurnal (daylight-active) lizard usually found at elevations below 3000 feet in tropical and subtropical regions from northern Mexico to central South America. It is most often found in the vicinity of rivers and streams. Male iguanas tend to be larger and have brighter overall coloration than females. The distinct color of males is especially pronounced during the breeding season. Males tend to have larger heads than females, in part because of swollen jowls. Both sexes have 12-13 prominent pores arranged in a row on the underside of both thighs. These glandular structures secrete a waxy substance with which iguanas mark their territory and identify each other. As the males mature, their "femoral pores" develop slight outward projections. This developmental modification probably enables the male to better grasp the female during copulation. An iguana's skin is entirely covered with very tiny scales. Iguanas cannot change their coloring (as chameleons do), but certain areas of their skin can become darker when exposed to direct sunlight. Young iguanas are pale blue-green with dark-ringed tails. They mature to a lighter, more earthy color, usually with dark vertical bars on the body and tail. Vision, hearing and the sense of smell are acute. In their natural environment, iguanas tend to be very wary, hiding or fleeing at any sign of danger. Iguanas are somewhat clumsy but accomplished tree climbers. They tend to bask by day on tree branches, often over water. When frightened or threatened, they usually drop (sometimes from great heights) into the water below. Being excellent swimmers, they quickly make their way to protective cover by pressing their front limbs along their sides and swishing their powerful tails from side to side. Iguanas can also safely land on the ground and run to protective cover after jumping from substantial heights. When threatened or cornered, iguanas can defend themselves with astonishingly quick, whip-like lashes of their tails and with their claws and jaws.

By Bill Christie
Rock iguanas are large lizards that need a fair amount of space devoted to them as adults. A minimum of 10m2 is recommended for an adult pair. This space coupled with several visual barriers allows adequate room and minimizes territorial aggression. Rock iguanas can be kept in groups if enough space is provided, although they are very territorial and a dominance hierarchy will quickly emerge. With the exception of Ricord's and rhinoceros iguanas, which are naturally sympatric, the other species of rock iguanas should remain separated. Equally important to the housing arrangement are secure hide areas to which each animal has exclusive access. They may not each use a separate hide, but it is important that it be available. They will use these hides to escape conspecific aggression and to retire for the evening. Cork bark tubes provide hide areas for juvenile iguanas at the Hope Zoo, Kingston, Jamaica.

Alien Iguanas Fall From Florida Trees During Cold Snap
Key Biscayne, Florida
Associated Press January 7, 2008 How cold was it in South Florida this week? So cold the iguanas fell from the trees. The cold-blooded reptiles go into a deep sleep when the temperature falls into the 40s Fahrenheit (5 to 10 degrees Celsius). Their bodies turn gray, and they lose their grip, experts say. Enlarge Photo Printer Friendly Email to a Friend SHARE Digg StumbleUpon Reddit RELATED But it isn't necessarily sudden death: The reptiles usually perk up again when the temperature rises. Miami MetroZoo officials said the night cold causes the most drops. "The worst part of the cold comes in the evening, and they literally just shut off," said Ron Magill, communications director for Miami Metrozoo. "Their bodies shut off and they lose their grip on the tree, and they start falling." Temperatures hit the high 20s Fahrenheit (-3 degrees to -1 degree Celsius) and low 30s Fahrenheit (-1 to +1 degree Celsius) this week in Florida during an unusual cold snap.

October 29, 2007
As the world’s only sea-feeding lizard, Galapagos Marine Iguanas have long held a unique place in the animal kingdom. While most of their life is spent on land, these lizards forage the seas for their staple food: algae. Now, new research has provided this species with another distinction: although the Galapagos Marine Iguana is mute, it recognizes and utilizes the alarm call of the Galapagos Mockingbird. This is the first instance of a non-vocal species eavesdropping on another species’ calls. Both the iguana and mockingbird fall prey to the Galapagos hawk, so by recognizing the mockingbird’s warning the iguanas gain important information on avoiding predation.

To verify this behavior, researchers on Santa Fe Island in the Galapagos recorded and played vocalizations of the Galapagos Mockingbird to communities of iguanas. The researchers watched the behavior of young and female iguanas (the larger males are rarely preyed upon by hawks). Approximately 45% of observed iguanas displayed vigilance behavior when the mockingbird’s alarm was played. However when the mockingbird’s song was played only 28% of iguanas reacted vigilantly, proving that certain iguanas can actually distinguish between the mockingbird’s alarm call and its song and thereby act accordingly to the threat.

Dealing with Iguanas in the South Florida Landscape
W. H. Kern, Jr.
Due to Florida's prominence in the exotic pet trade, iguanas imported as pets have escaped or been released, and are now established in South Florida. This has created unique problems for Florida's homeowners and businesses. South and Central Florida's subtropical climate allows these large herbivorous (plant-eating) lizards to survive, reproduce, and become part of the Florida environment. Three large members of the iguana family (Iguanidae) have become established in south Florida. These are the common green iguana ( Iguana iguana ), the Mexican spiny-tailed iguanas ( Ctenosaura pectinata ) and black spiny-tailed iguana ( C. similis ). Large male spiny-tailed iguanas are often misidentified as alligators by startled homeowners because of reduced dorsal spines and dark color. There are many other large lizards established in Florida that some people misidentify as iguanas. The brown basilisk ( Basiliscus vittatus ) is a large (up to 2 feet) lizard that is often mistaken for an iguana and occurs in the same areas as introduced iguanas. Knight anoles (

Monday, October 8, 2007; Page A08 Emotion Hormone Sharpens Memory It's well known that events that occur during times of intense happiness, anger or fear often remain most vivid in our memories far more likely to be recalled than less emotionally charged events. Now researchers think they have uncovered why: A hormone released during high emotion enhances the activity of nerve cells that then form unusually strong memory circuits in the brain. The chemical that floods the nerve cells is norepinephrine, the "fight or flight" hormone. Researchers at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and elsewhere found that the hormone enhances the memory process by adding phosphate molecules to a nerve cell receptor. Bathed in these additional phosphates, the receptors are better able to insert themselves into adjacent synapses, the spaces between nerve cells making a new memory circuit more powerful. Marine iguanas in the Galapagos Islands apparently are warned of danger by birds.
