Iguana eating poop?
Just recently (in the past week) I've noticed that my iguana has been eating his own poop. He's a young iguana and hasn't seemed inclined to this behavior before. I researched it on the Internet and got conflicting opinions. Some people say that this is something to worry about and I should take him to a vet, some say it's typical juvenile iguana behavior (like "poop painting" and "poop surfing", neither of which this iguana has done). It was suggested that young iguanas might do this if they're angry or upset but nothing has been changed in his environment recently. He's definitely growing though.
Anyone know what this means? Should I take him to vet or is this just a normal thing?
Three kitties (Hank, Napoleon, and The White One), two degus (Jay and Silent Bob), and a new chihuahua puppy (Gidget).
