    :confused: What's the right age to breed an iguana? :confused:

    Well, I discovered that there is no right age. It is more the size and health that determines when they can start breeding. If you are referring to a male then he will let you know when the time is right.;)

    Personally, the answer is never. There are far too many igs in rescues as it is.

    I agree. That is one of those "why would you want to?" questions.
    This country is loaded with homeless iguanas that have been surrendered to shelters.
    Also iguana mating can be quite violent and more than once has ended up in serious injury or fatality!

    I'm in agreement, here... no breeding. There are just too many rescues available.

    Yep I agree too, I just destroyed 33 eggs a couple weeks ago. Because not enough good homes around to put them in.

    :eek:Ahhh I didn't know that they get that ruff.:eek:

    One of my friends has a female about 4" bigger than my male.
    We were just curious. I wasn't planing on busting the igg population none. :p There's a few people I know that want to buy Ziggy from me, so I was just going to try to raise maybe 3 tops.

    What if you advise the people who want to buy from you to try rescues first?;)

    I would have to agree. I think rescue is the best way to go!

    Where would they have to look? Is there a internet site or something?

    that's for sure, at the rescue we volunteer at we have 6 igs all different ages and stages looking for forever homes, I myself would adopt the gorgeous male we have, but I already have a 17yr old human that PMS's like a tyrant, couldn't deal with a four legged one too LOL. Definitely look at rescues first, we see too many that are malnourished, burned etc. because people buy before researching

    Print the care sheets and get them the book that Wildheart says is so good. Make each potential owner read all of the info. Help them with enclosure set up. Inspect and grade housing and knowledge. If they pass-find them a suitable pet. (Just kidding... sorta).;)
