IGUANAS LOVE TO RIDE ON PEO­PLE’S SHOUL­DERS

Animal Scene - - ANIMAL APPEAL -

Most newly-ac­quired iguanas can be very skit­tish, of­ten run­ning or whip­ping their tails away from the po­ten­tial “threat”. This can be quite frus­trat­ing for some­one ex­pect­ing a docile com­pan­ion.

Many iguanas in an­i­mal sanc­tu­ar­ies have al­ready been so­cial­ized at a young age and con­stantly ex­posed to peo­ple. Get­ting an iguana to reach that level of ease would take months or even years of in­ter­ac­tion.
