Mel, the Pet of the Day
Name: Mel
Age: Two and a half years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Iguana
Home: New Hampshire, USA
   This is Mel, our 2.5 year old, four-foot-long, female iguana. Mel is one of three permanent residents and currently one foster iguana who we share our home with. Mel knows her name, will come when called and likes to bask in the bay window in our living room and take long warm baths in our old claw foot bath tub. We adopted Mel six months ago from a family that could not longer take care of her. Mel is also one of the stars of a website devoted to promoting proper iguana care and to help eradicate the huge problem of misinformation when it comes to iguanas and their care. She is a strict vegan (no animal protein or dairy of any kind) and enjoys snacking on homemade cranberry bread from time to time. Mel is very friendly and loves to meet new people. In the coming months, she will be traveling with us to help teach others how to properly care for their iguanas.
