Caicos, the Pet of the Day
Name: Caicos
Age: Five years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Giant Green Iguana
Home: Cromwell, Connecticut, USA
   I've had Caicos for five years, since she was only ten inches long. She is a complete and total sweetheart as far as Iguanas go, Very tolerant when she wants to be. She's been a bright spot in my life, and still is. She is the only iguana I know who cuddles when you pick her up, and she will close her eyes and fall blissfully to sleep when you scratch her on the head. If you look closely, you'll see she is modeling her necklace.

    She recently was diagnosed with Kidney disease, and I am treating her for this by misting her daily and soaking her in water for 10-20 minutes a day, every day. What can I say, she's the first real reptile I've owned, and she started it all! Now I have two snakes, and three geckos in addition to her, and she's still my favorite.
