||Three years old|
||Giant Green Iguana|
||Montreal, Quebec, Canada|
pet's name is Tootsie. He is a male of three years old. He's a
giant green iguana and lives in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Tootsie has
quite a temper to be frank. He especially doesn't like to be
manipulated. He likes to be on my shoulder, though. He does like to
be pet from time to time. So I learned to respect him in his
preferences. But still he is so funny sometimes! Like when he goes in
his small pool. He goes in and puts his head in the water and does
bubbles with his nose all along the border of his pool. Or plays
Tarzan by going up on the roof of his cage and with his front paws
goes from one end of the cage to the other.
I would just like to say one thing about iguanas. Although I would
not get rid of Tootsie under any circumstance, iguanas are not the
ideal pet to have, especially in the northern regions where they
can't have sun all year long. They require a lot of care, more then
dogs. And, it is common knowledge among the reptile community that nine
iguanas out of ten going out of the pet shop, died within their first
or second year of life because people didn't know how to care for the
iguana properly. Please think twice before buying one.
