actually i think ur iguana is bigger then her beardie, if u look at the pics of her beardie alone hes alot smaller, but thats just my thought, i understand what u mean about the tank and money thou its not easy, have u considered maybe building him a temp cage ?also from what i saw your breaded dragon is like 2 or 3 times the size of my iguana cause i saw that video of it with the bunny

what about looking online ? im sure u could find many ideas for iguana cages that would be easy and cheap to build. how big is the cage that u have that he will be eventually in ? maybe this site will help u not sure how good it is, but you could look at it if u want http://www.iguanaden.org/housing/cagematerials.htm
no but i did think the aquarium was an ok size for a temp thing. he seems perfectly fine in there and i take him out a lot so its not like hes being cooped up in thereMy beardie isn't that big, he would probably be around 20" if he had a full tail. I guess I don't really know how iguanas are built compared to beardies, but when I had a baby beardie I moved him out of a 20 gal once he hit 14".
Try Craigslist. Some people sell really nice home made full size iguana enclosures for $200-$300.
And I get it about the money thing- I have to pay for my own pets, so I'm not made of money either- But did you think iguanas were cheap and easy to care for? Because they are probably one of the most expensive and difficult lizards you can get.
side by side fridge..? and under his log it stays cool but idk how cool. and one side is cooler then the other side.. but idk how coolThe problem with the tank is its too small to have a temp veriation that iguanas need they need a hot spot at 90-95 degrees and a cool spot of 70 or so
you can't get that in a tank.
and the remark of the cage needs to be the size of a fridge? yes it does, in fact a side by side fridge is about the right size.
