Tom, the Pet of the Day
Name: Tom
Age: Seven years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Iguana
Home: Radcliff, Kentucky, USA
   This is my iguana, his name is Tom. He is a little over seven years of age, and is still growing. He is 30 inches long now, and a male iguana can get to be six feet long if they stay healthy, and don't lose a piece of tail, which can happen if they are hurt or get grabbed wrong. Iguanas can regrow their tails, but Tom has never been hurt, so has his whole tail. I love him and give him plenty of leafy greens and other foods, fruit and treats so he will stay well. He likes to come out of his habitat to wander around some every day, and likes to stretch out his full length on the back of the couch, as you can see, Handsome isn't he?

    Tom isn't furry like a dog or cat, and some people think he is strange to have as a pet, but I like him just the way he is. He loves basking in the sun, or on his heated rock in the wintertime, and we think he is an interesting pet to have. He is very quiet, doesn't bark at the mailman or need to be let out in the early morning hours - and while you have to know a lot to take care of an iguana, keep him warm, feed him right and keep his habitat well, he's the perfect pet for me!
