Iguana in the Garden
on August 15, 2010
I had no intention of buying this book until one evening in July my wife spotted something strange in her vegetable garden (in Akron, Ohio). Yes it was a juvenile green iguana that I managed to capture about an hour later. I was unable to find a local rescue society and did not want to give it to a pet store because we thought someone tossed it out and we did not want to have it sold to a like minded person. Several hundred dollars later the iguana, JJ, is living in my apartment.
I can only join in the many other reviews that highly recommend this book. It has everything you need to know about keeping iguanas including great advice on the "Ultimate Substrate" that I am using now. Combined with information from the Green Iguana Society I can't imagine that any question about pet iguanas would go unanswered. Just as important it shows these animals as having the potential to become friendly and endearing pets with a real personality. So if you are thinking about getting an iguana read this book, preferably before you acquire one.
