Charly, the Pet of the Day
Name: Charly
Age: Eighteen months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Green Iguana
Home: New Bern, North Carolina, USA
   Charly is my first iguana, I spend a lot of time with her. I also do iguana rescues and have four others in my home at this time. Charly was a juvenile iguana when I got her in September '04. I call her my Miss Attitude. She loves nothing better than to bob at me and the others, not to mention hissing. She has only bitten me one time and that was because I reached in her dark cage at night and something had already scared her. She is 32 1/2 inches long and has always had the best of care. Her diet consists of collard, turnip and mustard greens with a small amount of baby greens added, topped with grated butternut squash and sweet potato. I give her fruits twice a week and I never feed her animal protein. Iguanas are strict vegetarians. I want to keep my baby around for a very long time.
