Yes, iguanas are not for begginers. There's a lot involved on their care. anapsid.com (teh second link Natalie gave you) is the best place to start, but you should do a lot of research and talk to a lot of keepers before taking the step of adopting an iguana. Maybe your friend could help place the iguana in a good home, and if she wants to start with lizard-keeping and rescues, look into reptiles that are easier to keep, and start there, then work her way up into more complicated lizards, and participate in iguana rescuing, which is very needed, because most of the iguanas sold are not properly cared for and die within the first year of age.
