    My iguana likes sleeping under blankets. When he has his head out he'll eventually crawl all the way underneath. This is how he's sleeping now. Is this OK ...he won't suffocate Right?

    I think he would have be wrapped pretty tight to suffocate. Is this in his enclosure or is he a free-roamer?

    My dog does this whenever he sleeps, he mummifies himself. Don't worry he won't suffocate as long as it's not a trash bag or something.

    Hi, can you give details of the conditions in your home, do they closely resemble their natural habitat?

    He has a setup with his light and a doggy bed that he lays at. There are also plants there as well. If he lays there he will stay there all day ... He likes to sleep behind the fridge or at the window seal or in my bed also he also has a cat tree that he climb

    Can you show a few photos and say what the ambient (air) temp is, plus the surface temp at the basking site, the humidity range and how you measure all those? How long have you had the iguana?

    His main area doesn't have humidity but he hangs out in the shower everyday if not every other day ...so thats where he gets his humidity from. If he wants it he will hop in the shower and paw at it until we turn it on. He does also go outside. I've had him for about 2 1/2 years .... My mom got him as a baby 5 years ago.

    The only issues I see are the humidity, they will in thier natural habitat be in 70-80% humidity thier whole lives... In your home not being in an enclosure with a controlled environment, they can slowly get sick and die of organ failure. And it will not show till they are very sick. Thier organs will slowly dry out. Not trying to sound harsh but there are many other risk factors with free roaming iguanas.....
