    When I was young and had my first iguana I'd seen pics of igs on leashes and wanted to try it. Big mistake. He hated it, and he lost a couple of spines struggling with it. I never tried it again.

    I'd just wait til he's comfortable with you before taking him out, then you won't need a leash.

    The hip leash I recommended to you is one I have used myself for many years. And I know many keepers who also have used them. Also for small monitors and bearded dragons. It goes around the body in front of the back legs and so is not a problem with spikes the way the neck leashes are. The harnesses that are available were never meant for iguanas. They are nothing more than a repackaged ferret cat or rabbit leash and an iguana can lay its front legs back and slip right out of it.
    And the leashes are nothing more than a safety feature. They are not meant for walking the ig like a dog. That doesn't work.

    You don't buy them...you make them. Cost you under a buck.
