Introduction

You want to own an iguana? Do you know what it takes to

make that happen?

Owning an iguana is not something simple. You have to

balance their living environment with their needs for the

most natural levels of protection. If you don’t invest the

time in finding the right type of living area for your iguana

and give him the proper care, he will not be as healthy as he

should be. In fact, without the right environment, he will

perish.

There are many people that don’t invest enough time in

determining the right living environment for their iguana. In

the first chapter, we talk about just how important this fact

is. The bottom line is that without a carefully controlled

living environment, the iguana can become ill. The good

news is that we’ve taken all of the guess work out of it.

You’ll learn how to properly build a home for your pet, how

to maintain it, how to properly feed and clean your iguana

and even how to begin training your pet. With these things

in place, you’ll be able to bring home an iguana and call him

your pet. And, he’ll love you for doing so!

Chapter 1: Your Pet’s Home

Even before you consider purchasing an iguana, you must

consider its needs for a proper home. Since the iguana’s

health is dependant on the actual environment that he lives

in, it is essential that this part of the process happen first,

before anything else.

Iguana’s use their homes for more than just shelter. It is

imperative that his home provides the necessary protection

but also the right heat for his well being. Unlike the dog or

other mammals, iguanas must have a well maintained

climate in order to stay healthy.

This is due to the iguana’s need for the wavelengths of the

light within its home. They will use these wavelengths to aid

in their metabolism as well as in their body chemistry.

 

What Was Home Like?

If you consider where the iguana is from, you can see what

his needs will be in the climate that you create for him. The

extreme temperatures of that environment were also fairly

humid. This combination is what his body is conditioned for

and therefore must be replaced in the shelter you’ll provide

for him if he is to survive and be as healthy as he can be.

6

Without an environment that is conditioned for the right

temperature and humidity, your iguana will become ill, it will

suffer and it may even die because of this one simple factor.

What does he need, then? There are several key pieces of

information to consider. We’ll break them down for you

right here.

 

Size

Do you need lots of room? The iguana is so small, how can

they even imagine needing so much room? No matter what

you thought about his size or the room he needed, this is an

important consideration.

First, they aren’t small. In many cases, an iguana will grow

up to six feet in length. That’s a lot of iguana for you to

provide shelter for. There is one misconception out there

about this, though. Many think that if they limit the room

that they provide to their iguana that they will be safely

protecting it from getting extremely large. This is not true.

He will continue to grow.

Iguanas start growing at a faster rate then they will down

the road. But, he will grow his entire life.

7

Within your first year of owning him, your iguana will likely

grow out of the 55 gallon aquarium that you bought it. For

this consideration alone you should carefully decide on

whether this is the right pet for you. Space is necessary for

the animal.

The animal will need enough room to roam, not to just sit

still. While they grow you can expand their habitat to make

it larger to fit the iguana but you must take into

consideration this often, as they will continue to grow

throughout their lifetime, even as they are older.

The rule of thumb is that your iguana’s habitat should be at

least twice the length of the animal and it should be taller.

The taller it is the better. The minimum size for a habitat is

that of six feet. It is minimum because this animal is likely

to continue to grow. Without enough room, he will suffer

needlessly.

Without the right size cage, your pet will suffer. He may

injury himself just moving around. He will be stressed,

which can cause him to be less friendly to you. Those that

limit the iguana’s ability to move will cause his muscles to

become weakened. If you don’t have this type of room to

provide to your pet, don’t make his suffer at your expense.

You should consider a pet that is smaller.

8

One way to know what the proper size of the habitat for

your pet should be is to notice any injuries that he may

have. Those that have been rubbing their noses on the

glass or the doors will have burn marks or injuries there.

You may see broken claws too which means he was likely

scratching and looking for a way out.

In addition, these wounds are an indication that he or she is

not getting enough exercise in climbing. This is especially

true of an animal that has weakened muscles. Monitor the

size of your iguana to the size of his cage.

Monitor the growth of your baby iguana. When you start to

notice the he is about 1/3 of the length of his habitat, you’ll

want to consider replacing it with something larger. But, it

may be more cost effective if you instead provide a large

enough habitat for your iguana from the beginning.

Nevertheless, during the first months of his life, a large sized

aquarium is big enough for his needs. But, he will outgrow

this within that first year. In addition, realize that your

iguana will be fully grown within two and a half to three

years time! Make sure you are planning ahead for when

that next need arises.

 

The Lighting

9

Another important area of the care of your iguana is that of

the lighting. The lighting plays an important role in the care

of your pet. You’ll need to carefully monitor the amount of

light he gets. But, let’s spell out just what is needed here.

UVA and UVB:

These are the two most important considerations for the

lighting of your iguana. He needs both of them.

UVA: This light will be responsible for stimulating the

natural behaviors of the pet. This happens because it is a

natural part of what makes up natural sunlight.

UVB: This type of lighting is also important. Without UVB,
