What does he have now? Maybe you could re-arrange some stuff?

The life of an iguana pretty much consists of eating, basking, sleeping, and pooping. My only suggestions would be to give him lots of different climbing areas, maybe multiple basking lights to give him some choices. Try feeding him some colorful fruit treats, always in moderation though. In the wild, iguanas are fairly social animals, congregating in groups of one male and several females. He may appreciate a stuffed animal that looks kinda like another iguana - as long as it isn't bigger than he is and intimidating to him.

She sits in her corner, singing herself to sleep.
Wrapped in all of the promises, that no one seems to keep.

he tries to eat his friends, my green carpet, and my green shorts. he has lots of levels in his cage and spends most of his day tring to get out, every once and a while he succeeds and sits statisfied on top of his cage. until i come get him and plop him back in.

I take him out alot, he has a leash he can explore with... i don't think my iguana is normal. He loves going to new places... i think i want to get him a swing but im not sure how to go about it yet.

he gets fruit alot... not much but often.. banana's strawberrys cantalope, grapes, mango, orange, watermelon... and i got these funky jello like treats for him too that are cactus fruit

Do you put your ig in the bath? My sis has an ig and he loves playing in a bath of water. Iguanas love to swim etc so maybe that will help his boredom?

yea he takes a bath almost every day.. i'm not sure he's thrilled about it, i also put him on his leash and let him walk around the livingroom and when its nice take him out side and hang out but not that long of time cause whats nice to him is hot for me and i don't wanna stand in the sun for a long time hehe. and he gets scared with people coming up wanting to poke at him.. i think i will take him to petsmart and let him pick out something to play with... i wish they played with toys or something.

Get colored plastic balls my igs love to roll them around. Changing things in the cage will help too.

i put a bird cubby, a cloth round hid-a-way,
my guys crawls through it when he wants to sleep.
just make sure if you get one it is big enough so he doesnt get stuck and put it far away from the heating lamp.
