Iguana iguana

Basic Iguana Care

Tank Size: Baby Iguanas should be started out in a 20-30 gallon.

Lighting: Iguanas require UV light which they can get through various light bulbs as well as natural sunlight.

Heat: Iguanas need a daytime and a nighttime bulb as well as a heating pad underneath the tank.

Humidity: Iguanas need a good amount of humidity which they can get by being misted several times per day or given a bath.

Taming and Handling: In order for iguanas to become tame they need to be handled often, but for the first one three weeks there should be very minimal contact with it.

Diet: Iguanas are strictly herbivores and should not be given any animal protein. They should be fed many dark greens such as collard greens, mustard greens, dandelion greens, kale, escarole, and cabbage. They could also have fruits such as bananas, mango, and papaya. Commercial iguana food should never be a staple diet.
