How many iguanas can u have together?

I was just wondering how many iguanas could you have together. I heard they were terratorial. I don't know if it would be good or not, so if any one can give me some advice it be nice. Thanks.

If you get another it would be wise to house separately do to illnesses, inadequate basking spots for each, and of coarse you would be unable to see if both are eating all their food.

We have one Igy and he's so aggressive, it's hard to imagine him with anther one regardless. I think it has a LOT to do with the lizard himself, but you have to keep in mind that they are extremely territorial, so if you do decide to go with multiple lizards, make sure only one male is in the bunch. Make sure all introductions are done as smoothly as possible.

be careful becuase if it is breeding season the iguanas can become very aggressive to the others.

I'd consider the sexes, definitely NOT two males. If you get a male and a female, the male will dominate her, and then you have the possibility of babies. I think a combo of two females would work, but then you need to double the cage size, I'd suggest two large water dishes, two basking areas (so one can't hog the one basking area. Plus two places to eat (again so one doesn't hog it). An enclosure roughly the size of a small bedroom should be the minimum for two iggy's (IMO).

i think so too. i would never want 2 they are hard to care for to give attention and keep everything clean and if it doesn't work you have to have 2 really big cages and they could give each other problems if you have them out...

I Have 2 Male Iguanas That Are Both Kept In The Same Tank And Have Read That They Can Be Kept Up To About 4 Years Together. Mine Are Both Brothers And 3 Years October ,but I Am Currently Getting Rid Of 1 Because Its A Shame For Him, The Other Eats More Food As If It Were A Race And Being The Bigger Of The 2 Has Full Control Of The Tank. Example ,he Nods His Head And If On The 3rd Nod The Other Hasnt Moved ,he Charges And Nips The Other ,not Bite ,just A Nip. I Am Currently Experiencing Very Aggressive Behavior From The Big 1 He Bites [and Does Damage] ,wips And Hates 2 Be Picked Up. Ive Had Them Both Since They Were 9 Months So It Aint As If They Know Me And Tried Everythink !
