is my girl, her name is LaQuita a.k.a. Lizzy. LaQuita says hello!
This picture was taken when I came home from work after her first day in
the house. She had managed to get out of her cage, get scared and scare
the dogs, run down the stairs then climb a lamp! She's much calmer now,
and her and the dogs have an understanding of who runs the house. She
I adopted Lizzy through the Green Iguana Society. Her ad was only two
lines, and there was no picture attached. It stated that she was really
lazy, slept most of the time but was a good girl. Thats about it, but
it spoke to me! So I got a couple friends and we made a weekend out of
picking her up nine hours away! It was an interesting trip to say the
least but we all made it back home safely.
LaQuita came with a small cage, but we have now built her a huge habitat
in the studio. She has many different levels with ramps and logs to
connect them all, and its a never ending process! We are constantly
thinking about how we can add to and improve it. My favorite part is
the toilet area, it makes cleaning up that funky iguana poo much easier!
She shares her space with a gecko and snake each in their own cages, and
sometimes she likes to terrorize them. It' s all in good fun, right?
She's just jealous that they get to eat crickets and mice, and only
greens for lizzy... She likes to cruise around the house when she climbs
down her log from her habitat and sit right in front of the huge fish
tank and gaze.
I love this little girl, but I wish I would have done more research
before I got her! I now recommend anyone thinking of an iguana for a pet
to do their research!
