IGUANAS LOVE TO RIDE ON PEOPLE’S SHOULDERS
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.
