    Hi there! My name is Marisa and I finally acquired the iguana I have always wanted! I always thought I would get a green iguana but after a lot of research, I decided to own a Cyclura! I am a homeowner with lots of space and will be providing him/her with a large enclosure and allowance to roam the house once older. I just got Jira today, he/she is 36 days old, and is already good with some light handling. I have a lot of experience with reptiles and handling wild iguanas (they tame well with me), and I am excited for this new adventure. I owned a Snapping Turtle for a long time (he was such a gentle giant) and I have a red eared slider (easy care, I know). Looks like there aren't many owners of the Cyclura in the US or on here, but enjoy the two pics I posted if you can! :)

    Thanks everyone! Attached is a new pic...one month apart, he is growing quickly! He is still timid but I am handling him everyday, and he takes a nap on me later in the evening. These guys sleep a lot! He must be getting about 16-18 hours a day. but when he is awake he is VERY active, even jumping and climbing the ceiling of his enclosure!

    Also I added him smiling from my shoulder. He is a cutie :)

    Sorry - my RES is VERY easy, I have had him for about 4 years now (little boy, full grown). I trained him to take food from his platform, so not much of a mess, and his filter goes about 4 month between cleanings (its a Fluval U4). So really all I do is feed him once a day and change his filter 3 times a year and all is well. He is a very happy boy and loves to interact with me.

    Attaching a pic of him the other night trying to get to me...he doesn't like to be held but he loves to be as close to me as possible under water and from the platform. He's a cutie, named Koopa.

    Hi, I was wondering where you got your Rock from? I've been trying to get more information concerning baby Rocks & Rhinos from "Snakes at Sunset" where I've seen others have ordered theirs from but haven't had ANY luck getting responses.

    Thanks, Great looking Cyclura!

    Hi Jim!

    I did order him from Snakes at Sunset. They only had two hatchlings left for the season so I ordered him right away. These are not easy to find and you usually need to wait for the next group of hatchlings. I agree the guys at Snakes at Sunset are not responsive to inquires, but they were good about communicating when he was shipped and his age, etc. I think you just need to watch their inventory for the next clutch. It looks like everyone is sold out for now. Back water reptiles is sold out, Florida Iguana...every one seems to be sold out right now (I just looked them up). Wow - I got lucky!
