    I guess this is what happens when you adopt older iguanas...My beloved Spazzie was found dead this morning. She was fine, eating, pooping etc and never showed signs of I am assuming old age was the factor...she died peacefully in her sleep and I found her at feeding time this morning...She is my longest owned iguana...for 7 years...she was given to me in a 20 gal tank, one she lived in for at least 5 yrs (they couldnt remember how long exactly) and she was 1 1/2 ft long...after a year of great care, a larger cage and UVB, she blossomed into a 3 1/2 foot gorgeous gal who always loved attention....she shared her cage with Lizzie and Ziggie, two more adoptees and had resided with them for 3 1/2 yrs...she was queen of her castle and often charged, but never bit the two larger cage mates lol....I am saddened by this loss but I know she is in a better place....Thanks for reading...Lyn

    It sounds like you gave her the best years of her life and she died peacefully and as a queen. We could all wish for such an end!
    I'm sorry for your loss; all the best for the new year. You are in our thoughts!

    Ohhh Lyn, I am so sorry to hear of your loses. I realize these things happen, when we take in older (former abused or neglected) herps, but my goodness the timing stinks. You poor honey.

    On a more positive note, remember....when a door closes, another opens. So there is probably a critter in dire need of your tender loving educated experienced care, who will now have the opportunity to find refuge in your home & life.
