Is Eduardo, my Green Iguana. This picture is when he was with his
friend Buddy, who is a Chinese Water Dragon. Eduardo is three years old
and is male. Buddy won't get any bigger, so as Eduardo grows and grows -
iguanas can grow to be five to six feet long, the size difference
between them will be much greater! I got him from a pet store where he
was in a tiny cage with two other iguanas and one piece of lettuce. I
knew right then he had to come with me!
You could say Eduardo is well-trained because I leave his cage open and
he goes out wandering and he always finds his way back in. I don't ever
have to go looking for him, he always returns. I guess he must like his
cage. Eduardo is pretty smart, too - some people don't realize lizards
think. But when Eduardo is hungry, he gets out of his cage, finds me,
and climbs my leg. It works every time!
