Gravid Iguana X-rays (Iguana iguana)
The images below depict a gravid female iguana who has undergone x-rays. This iguana is not experiencing Dystocia
(egg-binding) and none of the eggs have started to calcify, but she is carrying a large number of eggs for a female her size. These x-rays were done to confirm her
gravidity and as a possible prep for surgery as the vet suggested the iguana get spayed.
The images clearly show the eggs surrounding her torso.

The image below was inverted which allows for greater clarity of the eggs.
