    I've got an Isla Cerralso Spiny-Tailed iguana. I need help! I live 10 miles from Cerralvo Island. I just want to know how to care for him and if he has any specific things about the species. Are there any articles written on this certain type of iguana, or is there anyone here who can help?

    Thanks, I'll take a look at those. And I'll be posting some pictures of him (or her...) probably this weekend.

    Yeah, so I read. We din't buy this guy. One day our groundskeeper showed up with a big smile on his face and holding this lizard. So we put him in a bird cage over night and studied up on them. Now he is running loose in a bedroom, there aren't many hiding places. He comes out to bask and we gave him a lamp. He seems content enough. Won't eat on his own so we catch him and put food in front of his mouth, when he opens it we put it inside and then he swallows. He is pretty mellow, sometimes hisses when we come to close, but mostly ignores us. LOL. We are going to build him a cage type terrarium sometime. Hope he gets tame sometime in his lifetime.

    Is there a way to judge their age? And what gender they are?
