Delilah, the Pet of the Day
Name: Delilah
Age: Three and a half years old
Gender: Female
Breed: Green Iguana
Home: Massachusetts, USA
 
   Hi! My name is Delilah. I am a strict vegetarian. My favorite food is cheese. My favorite place to lay, while out of my cage, is on the back of my "Mom's" favorite chair. I love to be outside basking in the sun; I love it so much outside, last winter I sat in front of the window waiting for all of the snow to melt away! I am also very friendly.

    A Few Words From The Family! We have had Delilah since March 1995. A few months after we got her she broke her front "arm." We had to take her to the vet. The vet told us that she had a Metabolic Bone Disease, which is common in iguanas and all we could do was make her "take it easy" and give her lots of calcium. She looks and feels great. When we first got her she could fit in the palm of my hand with her tail hanging down, now she is so big and heavy my arms gets tired if I hold her to long. She is about 4' head to tail & weighs about 5.5lbs. She comes with us to lots of places: the store, the mall, the pet store (her favorite), my work... just about everywhere except out to dinner, unless we're picnicking!!
