A lot of people won’t believe you if you tell them an iguana can make a very nice and affectionate pet; but I’m here–along with this video–to tell you that they’re wrong. Indeed, this iguana looks very much like mine, although mine was older and a little bigger. I had him for 17 years.
If you get your iguana as a baby and take the trouble to raise him not as a curiosity but as a real pet, you’ll get a real pet. My iguana had dog and cat friends that he liked to cuddle up with if it was a cold day. His cage was always left open; he always went back in when he had to do his business. Even my mother loved him.
Sometimes you don’t have to be warm-blooded to have a warm heart.
