General information about iguanas:
  • Iguanas are a species of lizard with a row of spines running down their back to their tail.
  • They can grow to as long as 4-6 feet in length and reach 10-15 pounds in weight.
  • In captivity, they average a lifespan of 12-15 years.
  • While they are popular as pets, they can be difficult to tame and may become aggressive.

Suggestions:

  1. Contact your local pet store. Can they send someone to your site to talk about iguanas? Can they bring some?
  2. Check out Wikipedia for general information about iguanas.
  3. Check out www.drexotic.com and exoticpets.about.com to learn about the care and feeding of iguanas and other exotic animals. The latter offers several more links.
