Baby Green Iguana for sale
Baby Green Iguanas for sale (Iguana iguana)
Baby Green iguanas are found throughout tropical and subtropical North and South America. Green iguanas are common in Mexico and south throughout Central America and down through South America to Paraguay and Argentina. Green iguanas also occur throughout the Lesser Antilles and, in the past 20 years or so, the Greater Antilles and Southern Florida. In the Greater Antilles and southern Florida, green iguanas are an introduced species.
There is a definitive difference in the physical appearance of green iguanas for sale depending on their locale. First, the South American green iguana for sale population used to have the taxonomic name of Iguana iguana iguana. South American green iguanas are much less cold tolerant than the Central American green iguanas once referred to as Iguana iguana rhinolopha. All these subspecies are now synonymous, and there is only one recognized species: Iguana iguana. Green iguanas from some parts of Central America have horns on their noses ranging in size from small bumps to quite large flexible horns over a ½ inch long.
Baby Green Iguana for sale Availability
The green iguana is arguably the most common reptile in the pet trade today. Green iguanas are readily available and almost one million are imported into the United States annually as babies. It is true that these wonderful lizards make personable pets, but very few people who purchase them can meet the requirements of an adult green iguana.
If you are considering keeping a pet green iguana, I urge you to consider adopting one from a reptile rescue. Unless you can provide adequate facilities for an adult green iguana, you should not consider purchasing a green iguana as a pet.
Currently, there are several beautiful designer morph green iguanas available on the market. The hobbyist may now purchase erythrystic iguanas, blue iguanas (axanthic) and albino iguanas. Contrary to popular belief, albino green iguanas do well in full sun and with inside ultraviolet light. The sun has no adverse effect whatsoever on the albino iguanas. Many of these morphs, such as the albinos, are still quite expensive, but over time they will likely become more affordable.
Green Iguana Size
Green iguanas may reach lengths of 6 to 7 feet and weigh around 20 pounds. Male green iguanas reach a greater length than female green iguanas, which rarely exceed 5 feet in length. Additionally, mature male green iguanas have larger spikes going down their back and large femoral pores on the underside of their back legs.
The rhinoceros iguana is one of the world’s most magnificent iguanas. As its name implies, it is found on the island of Hispaniola. This species (as well as all other members of the genus Cyclura) are vulnerable due to their remote island habitats. Most Cyclura iguanas are listed as threatened or endangered.
The rhinoceros iguana is being kept in private collections in increasing numbers, and for good reason. Their large, impressive appearance make them a very desirable species to own. The disposition of this species can vary considerably. Some rhinoceros iguanas become extremely tame.
Rhinoceros Iguana for sale (Cyclura cornuta) Rhino Iguana Care
Rhino iguanas for sale are some of the most trainable and docile pet iguana for sale, if properly handled and cared for when they are baby rhino iguanas for sale. If you’re considering where to buy a baby rhino iguana for sale near me, please do your research and provide your new pet rhino iguana for sale the proper pet iguana habitat setup. Rhinoceros iguanas for sale are found on a few islands in the Caribbean. The Rhino iguanas for sale that belong to this genus are among the most endangered lizards in the world. Male Rhino iguanas for sale can reach an adult size of four feet and weigh over 20 pounds. Iguanas are difficult to sex as babies but mature males can be distinguished by their larger heads and jowls. The easiest way to sex adult Iguanas is the presence of enlarged femoral pores. These pores are located on the underside of the back legs, male iguanas’ pores are noticeably larger. Male iguanas are aggressive towards each other and should be housed separately. Rhinoceros iguana for sale is a are long-lived reptile and one can expect their pet rhino iguana for sale to live 20-40 years if properly cared for.
Temperature and UV Lighting
Rhinoceros iguanas should be maintained at a daytime temperature of 85-90 degrees, with a basking spot reaching up to 95 degrees. Night time temperatures should be maintained between 70 -75 degrees. If your home is cooler than these temperatures at night you will need a red or other dark heat light to be used at night. Iguanas come from a fairly humid environment and ideally you should mist the cage a few times a week. Rhinoceros iguanas require 10-14 hours of UVB light a day. This light enables the iguana to produce vitamin D3. The vitamin D produced by UVB metabolizes the calcium in the lizards’ diet. In general it’s what makes iguanas’ bones hard and without it they usually die. This process of inadequate UVB and calcium is called Metabolic Bone Disease. Also it is very important to change your UVB light every 6-8 months, after this time the light stops producing adequate UVB. If you’re not sure if your UV light is still producing UVB, bring it in and we’ll be happy to test the light for you.
Rhinoceros iguanas also require a calcium and vitamin supplement. This supplement works with the UVB light allowing the lizard to receive the proper amounts of calcium and vitamins. This should be used every day as babies and reduced to 1-2 times a week as adults. Calcium is sold in a powder form and is sprinkled on the vegetables that you feed your Iguana. You should apply a very light coating to the food items, being careful not to waste any excess powder.
Our recommendation for bedding is moist play sand and rocks.
Food and Water
Rhinoceros iguanas are herbivores and their diet should consist of green leafy vegetables. The following vegetables should make up 80 percent of an iguana’s diet: Collard greens, mustard greens, red leaf lettuce, green leaf lettuce, romaine lettuce, dandelion greens, hibiscus leaves and flowers, green onions, spinach, green beans, zucchini, and frozen mixed vegetables. Fruits should make up the remaining 20% of an iguanas diet. Examples of ideal fruits are: Apples, bananas, strawberries, figs, peaches, mango, papaya, cantaloupe, grapes, blackberries, and blueberries. Iguanas also can be fed dry pellet foods as a supplement to the diet stated above. Fresh clean water should be available at all times.
General Iguana Habitat Setup & Care
Pet Iguana for sale – Iguana Substrate
The substrates we use for our green iguanas are plain rabbit pellets or alfalfa pellets. This is done because the substrate is often eaten by neonate green iguanas by accident, and eating these pellets will not cause as much harm as other substrates. However, if I ever saw baby green iguanas eating the rabbit pellets or alfalfa pellets deliberately I would remove them. If I were keeping larger green iguanas inside I would use cypress mulch.
Pet Iguanas for sale – Iguana Lighting and Temperature
Baby iguanas for sale as well as the adult iguana for sale will need a lot of heat. With a baby iguana for sale, one heat bulb is sufficient, but with an adult green iguana, you need a bank of at least six lights in order for the green iguana to adequately heat up its entire body.
I suggest using incandescent heat bulbs and a double row of fluorescent UV bulbs so that vitamin D synthesis is possible. UVA and UVB should both be provided for optimum results. Strong UV fluorescent lights are needed to prevent metabolic bone disease.
A hotspot of at least 120 degrees Fahrenheit should be provided. Additionally, the heat should come from above the pet iguana for sale, so the parietal eye is engaged, thus enabling the green iguana to thermoregulate as required. Located directly on top of the head of all iguanas for sale, behind their eyes, is an unusual scalelike organ called a parietal eye or pineal body. This scalelike sensory organ can detect light, dark and movement. The parietal eye is extremely important for thermoregulation purposes and to warn green iguanas of predators approaching from above, such as birds of prey.
Of course, parts of the cage should be cooler, so the green iguana is able to choose the temperature it likes by thermoregulating between hotter and cooler temperatures. A high end of 120 degrees and a cooler end in the low to mid-80s works well with baby iguanas for sale as well as adult iguana for sale. The real key is allowing the baby iguana for sale to choose its own body temperature, and all the keeper has to do is provide the means for it to do so.
DO NOT USE HOT ROCKS, HEAT PADS OR ANY OTHER HEAT SOURCE COMING FROM THE FLOOR. Captive green iguanas often burn themselves when substrate heaters such as “hot rocks” are used as a heat source. The reason for this is that the parietal eye is not engaged, and green iguanas do not recognize these as heat and attempt to bask. Only provide the heat or basking lamp or element/source from above.
