is our boy Thor. You can see why his species is called the Green
Iguana, although when he is older he won't be quite as vivid a green. He
is a friendly little iguana. He loves climbing on the screen windows and
on top of his parents heads, too. We did a lot of research before we got
him, and are very careful that he gets the food he needs to grow healthy
and strong. We hope that before he reaches his full size, though, he
will learn to settle for a shoulder instead of our heads, as a full
grown adult Green Iguana can weigh over four pounds, and can be 4 feet
long! But right now he's really still a little hatchling, so he fits on
heads just fine. Thor is also highly curious and wants to investigate
anything new in his environment - perhaps that's why he like our heads
to perch on - for the view! Thor is an only pet and we look forward to
many years of fun with him.
