    There really isn't an explainaton for it I have had some that do and some that don't. Is his food under his basking light? That might contribute to it whenever mine has though I just figure its because he is too fat and lazy to climb back up lol!

    lol no it a little lower than the basking spot, lol maybe he is lazy. I mean he eats and then he goes to the water and lays in it then he climbs out the water and lays on top of his food to sleep. lol

    Maybe it is just comfortable because it is soft. Iguanas like to lay on soft things - I think that is part of why Tito likes his rope so much. Try putting a little pillow or some socks or something in there for him to lay on and see if he lays on that instead...?

    Yeah That would make sense I never thought about it like that, my old iguana had a silk pillow I made for him and he loved it!

    I just wish my ig will lay on top of his pillow instead of under the pillow.:(
