    Never heard of one grieving. Can you detail how you are housing it. Pictures of enclosure and the ig can help to.

    I am very sorry about your son.
    As Merlin said, it would help a lot to hear and see how the iguana is being kept, housed, fed (diet) and some pictures too, if you could manage that.
    We would like to help you with advice on the care of your son's iguana.

    I will take pics when I get home, but he is in a large wire cage with limbs for climbing. After reading up, I have wrapped a sheet around 2 sides to help keep him at a warmer temps. He has a heat light. I mist him daily and soak him in the tub a few times a week. I feed him collards, acorn squash, tomatoes, yellow squash, monkey biscuits. I use a calcium spray and vitamin spray on his food.

    What about uvb? Also what's in the monkey biscuits? They can't process animal products I believe. (Correct me if I'm wrong)

    Stop feeding the monkey biscuits. That's an old school recommendation that shortened the life of a lot of iguanas. They cannot digest animal protein.
    What are the temperatures?
