Hello! My step son purchased a juvenile red iguana today at a Reptile Expo and was told that he is approximately 6 months old. He seemed very tolerant of handling and did well on the hour drive home. The breeder recommended a mesh cage as an enclosure, which we currently have a 48"×24"×24" repti breeze cage. However after researching more it seems like many people recommend enclosing 3 sides. We currently have a very large 150 watt basking light, iguana hammock, automatic misting system, live plants, drift wood, vines, and other climbing items in his cage. We have a repti rapids fountain coming from Amazon later this week also. We also purchased some commercial iguana food, and have been chopping up fresh romaine lettuce, kale, cabbage, carrots, bell peppers, blueberries, and strawberries as well. I'm curious what some experienced iguana owners prefer in terms of cage, diet, and set up. The breeder said that iguanas do not need a UVB bulb however we have owned chameleons and know that it is essential for them to have. I would be seriously surprised if iguanas did not. My last question is in regards to the iguanas recent behavior. He seemed relaxed and content up until about 30 minutes after putting him in the new cage, he was licking things and very very calm while being handled, drinking water from a spray bottle; completely fine . He randomly began running and jumping throughout the cage like crazy and it took a good 15 minutes for him to settle. We left this evening for a bit and came home to find him relaxed and basking on the hammock. I needed to put the fresh vegetables in his food bowl and as soon as I opened the cage, he freaked out and started running around again. I was just wondering if this was a typical reaction to being in a new environment and home? It just seemed to happen so quickly after how he acted before being placed inside. My biggest fear is that he will injure himself during one of his episodes or jump out of the cage and take off. Any advice given is greatly appreciated and will be taken seriously! Thanks!
