The Mysterious Secrets of The Giant Green Iguana

Aug 17, 2007
The giant green iguana is likely the best pet of the entire iguana family because it is the easiest to tame and does not show aggression in captivity as strongly as many of its relatives display. The giant green iguanas are generally acquired from a hot and tropical location and require very precise living conditions while in captivity or they can die a very horrible death. In order to house your reptile properly it is essential to understand and be able to provide the housing conditions in which it requires to sustain a good quality life.

Housing Conditions

The giant green iguana is a wonderful pet to own however there are some considerations to take into account before deciding if you can properly house one or not. It is no surprise that the giant green iguana gets it name because it tends to grow to quite large sizes and in fact can grow to weigh more than 20 pounds and can grow in length up to six feet long!

It is also necessary to consider when deciding on a giant green iguana that the life span of these reptiles are typically anywhere from ten to fifteen years. That is a very long commitment to take on when deciding on a giant reptile for your house pet. It is one of the most serious problems with giant green iguanas because a lot of potential owners think that they are very cute when they are small but they grow to be very large and the owners decide they can't house the iguana that it has grown to become.

It is also imperative to know when deciding if a giant green iguana is the pet for you that it is a particularly good pet for children to be around for a variety of reasons. The first and probably most important that most potential owners overlook is that iguanas tend to carry salmonella on their skin. People that handle these creatures should be diligent in hand washing to avoid being sickened by the salmonella and children are not very disciplined in doing these things and as a result tend to fall ill to salmonella poisoning.

The giant green iguana holds yet another reason that children are not a good owner of these reptiles is because children have a way of scaring the iguanas by jumpy moves and not speaking softly as they tend to get excited easily as do the giant green iguanas and that won't make for a good situation and the iguana will get very aggressive and mean with the children.
