Taking Care Of Your Iguana Correctly

Training Your Iguana

It’s important to mention some training here. That’s because you’ll want to be able to bring your iguana home to a nice, ready home and allow him to get acclimated to the area. There are many things you’ll want to take into consideration when it comes to training your iguana. First, realize that your iguana needs time to get adjusted to his home. It may take some time!

Allow your iguana to visit his hiding place without being bothered or pulled out of it. In addition, when you do pick him up and take him out of his habitat, watch for signs of stress. If he doesn’t like what you are doing, he’s stressed and he fears for his life. Place him near his hiding place and leave him alone.

The process of taming your iguana will take time and patience. Use smaller sessions at first to get them used to you. One way to help provide the right level of care to your iguana is to allow him to watch you. Start out by watching him watch you from a distance and for a short amount of time. Then, add onto this slowly until you are sitting near him and watching him.

After he’s used to watching you, you can begin working with touching him. Don’t pick him up yet! He’s not ready for that. But, put your hand close enough to him. Don’t touch his head or his tail. Touch for a second and then move away. Little by little, you’ll be able to increase how long you can touch him. Don’t push it because if he doesn’t like being petted, it will take a lot of work to get him to allow it again.

Once your pet begins to allow you to pet him, including his head, you can begin to see that he’s comfortable with you. It’s advisable not to actually pick up your iguana for some time. He’s just going to take a while to adjust to you. Once you’ve gotten to the point where he doesn’t seem bothered at all by your petting, you can consider it. Never grab his tail! The tail can actually break off in order for them to escape.

By petting its underbelly, it may rise up and want to be petted there more so. When that happens, you’ll be able to slowly pick him up. But, for these first few times, pick him up slowly and then put him back down. By doing this it will help to make the process easier and keep your iguana happier, longer. With lots of practice, you’ll be able to pick him up for longer periods of time.

Planning Your Habitat

The habitat that you create for your iguana should be carefully designed and built to provide your pet with a healthy living environment. If you do not provide a high level of attention to this part of the process, you can’t provide the proper care for your pet that he or she deserves and needs.

One thing that can’t be stressed enough is the need to educate yourself before purchasing your habitat for your iguana. Since this is so important of a decision, you don’t want to make costly mistakes. The fact is that most people purchase a habitat only to determine that they should have purchased something else. The best lesson to learn, then, is to keep learning! continue... “Planning Your Habitat”  »»

Iguana Care


Another very important element to your iguana care is his temperature. Actual, the habitat’s temperature is important to monitor. Again, in later chapters we’ll provide you with some additional resources to help you to get the temperature right, but there are some things that must be mentioned early on.

First off, realize just what your iguana is. He is cold blooded. That means that his body does not produce heat like yours does and that means you have to provide it for him through his enclosure.

One spot within your iguana’s habitat should be maintained at 90 degrees or higher F. This will be called his basking spot, where he can go to really soak up the heat. The surrounding air within the habitat can not drop below 80 degrees F.

Why does the temperature of the habitat matter so much? What if it falls off by a few degrees? So what? The problem with this is that the iguana depends on the right temperature to do much of its life functions. For example, without the right level of heat, the iguana can’t digest his food the right way and absorb the nutrients from it.

Without the right light, your pet will not be able to grow correctly. He or she will likely be suffering from malnutrition. He is likely not to move around much and will remain inactive. That’s because he is uncomfortable and unhappy. He’s suffering.

But, you don’t want the habitat to maintain the same amount of heat all of the time. Providing areas that fluctuate to some level within the habitat is necessary as it will allow him to decide how to regulate his temperature.

Finally, before we move on, you also should realize that the heat that you give your iguana must not be attached to the light source. Just like you need a day and night; so does he. Heat and light are two different things that your iguana must have.

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.

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. continue... “Your Pet’s Home”  »»

You want to own an iguana?

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! continue... “You want to own an iguana?”  »»
