Koa, the Pet of the Day
Name: Koa
Age: Unknown
Gender: Unknown
Kind: Green Iguana
Home: San Diego, California, USA
   This is my pet Iguana. I won't know the gender of my iguana until it is older, but until then, I will consider my iguana a male. His name is Koa (ko uh). I do not know his exact age, but I do believe that he is anywhere from six months to one year old. I bought him at the local pet store, Pet Market, for the price of $20. He feeds on all leafy greens, flowers and vegetables. He is very aggressive when I enter his room. He becomes very territorial, showing aggression and bares his little teeth, and sometimes even uses his tail as a weapon. His room is a large "walk-in" closet. I think it's ideal, due to the fact that he will become 5-6 feet long within a few years. Although he is very aggressive in his room, when he is out of it, he is gentle as a dove. He is interesting and I look forward to having him for years to come.
