IGUANAS ARE LOW-MAIN­TE­NANCE

Animal Scene - - ANIMAL APPEAL -

Peo­ple might think iggies are low-main­te­nance just be­cause they don’t move around much. In truth, they can be very de­mand­ing.

Reg­u­larly chang­ing their swim­ming and toi­let wa­ter, al­ways buy­ing food that per­ishes quickly, al­ways in­creas­ing en­clo­sure size, con­stantly burn­ing out UVB and heat bulbs and re­plac­ing them, mak­ing sure they have enough cal­cium in their diet, mak­ing sure their shed­dings don’t get stuck, fig­ur­ing out how to be­come friends with them -- th­ese are just some of what you will need to do. They can re­ally be a hand­ful some­times, es­pe­cially if you aren’t used to them.
