erm... his cage is made of glass and has marble on bottom..Its kinda small for his size
It is actually really far too small....at his current size, he should be in something that is no smaller than 200cm x 120 cm x 200cm.
but im gonna make a bigger one from metal (you know, the ones they use to keep dogs inside in pet shops,
Have you considered how that will maintain humidity, and how to keep it from rusting? As well, you are going to want one that is no less than 250cm long, 180cm wide, and 225cm tall...I genuinely doubt that you will find a dog crate even approaching that size.
About the wood chips i used... i dont really remember the brand and the type of wood since i threw away the bag, but its a red-dark brown type of wood...
If it was not cypress mulch, it should not be used....cypress mulch is red/dark-brown, but so are a lot of other woods...some naturally so, some dyed.
about the lettuce..i cant post pictures i need 20 posts or more hehe..i use the normal lettuce we put in our salad
and the other one that has more curves..Im sorry i really cant describe them more!!
The fact that you do not know what sort of lettuce you are feeding concerns me a great deal....your knowledge and care on the diet your iguana is getting is lacking terribly. The only lettuces that you should ever include in his diet are red leaf, romaine, oak leaf, and endive...and he should have other greens, like dandelion leaves (organic, NOT from your lawn), collards, etc...and there are some that you must avoid, like spinach and kale.
when i got him he was smaller than my palm, the employee from pet shop told me it was around 2 months old.. And now he is about 30cm without his tail and 70cm with his tail
He is a bit small for his age...possibly due to poor diet and a lack of proper UVB lighting.
and yes i know for sure he is a male,the spikes on his back are growing biger along with him and his jewels start getting bigger too...!
Apparent secondary sexual characteristics do not a positive gender identity make, but it is a start.
Have you ever seen Hatfield's iguana manual? If not, order it straightaway, and read it...every page, front to back...something you should have done 2 years ago.
Iguanas are not easy to keep well, and in the 17 years that I have run my rescue I have dealt with hundreds that have suffered from improper care.
