My boyfriend has property in Nicaragua, very close to the Costa Rican border, and he has been researching iguana farming as a way to help save the wild population from being obliterated. We have found very few links online (one on MK's site, but not many others) and he was also able to obtain some "how to" pamplets from a Costa Rican iguana sanctuary that recently shut down. Does anyone here know anything or have experience doing this? In Nicaragua there is a holiday during which they eat (Im sorry guys) a gravid female iguana, thereby whiping out many at once, and they sell the poor critters at the market for about a buck. My boyfriend is thinking of buying a few of these females so they can lay their eggs on his farm and begin the process of raising iguanas to be released in the wild.
Any thoughts or experiences you can share?
