have two green iguanas. Quatsi and Cihua are their names. They are
male and female. They are approximately two and a half years old now.
They live in Florida. Quetza and Cihua are about two and a half years
old and a little over four feet long. They live in a very large cage,
6' X 3' and four feet high, for five months of the year. Then they
are moved to a large outdoor enclosure for seven months.
They eat from my garden all year round. I grow their food, pesticide
free. They are healthy and seem to enjoy their lives. Their favorite
food from the garden is Collard Greens. I grow this food source year
round for the herps. They also like most any fresh
fruits, and an occasional slice of loaf bread. Whenever we have baked
chicken, they also get a treat. They prefer to spend their days
sunning themselves. They live in a rural area of Northwest Florida.
Their nicknames were derived from the ancient Toltec god
Quetzalcoatl and his female counterpart Cihuacoatl, of southern
Mexico, where these animals thrived naturally. They were represented,
on occasion, as Winged Serpents.
