thanx ill keep my patience high
what is a good heat source to use for a baby igg in a 50 gallon tank?
Either a basking bulb or a CHE.
I prefer CHE's since you can run it at night.
what age/size can u use a leash for an igg?
Using appropriate sized cord you can use a hip leash from about 4-5 inches SVL. However a leash on an ig is only a safety feature to prevent them spooking and getting lost.
You can't walk them like you would a dog.
whats is a hip leash
It goes infront of the hind legs to prevent damage to the throat and neck. some people can use traditional harnesses, but these are safer. Just be warned, an untamed iguana could seriously hurt or even kill itself struggling against a leash.
I modified an Iguana Lead & Harness (click here to see the product) that I had into a hip leash.
I just formed a loop instead of forming the harness.
Here is a link of an article on this site
