Thought I would share pictures of Yoshi.
Awww... what a cutie! Enjoy it while you can; they get big quicker than you think!
Haha! Sooo tiny!
Aww, he's so tiny! And such a light bright green!! He's very cute.
Is that his 3rd eye showing already??????
Aww. I miss those days when they were so small, and flighty and whippy, wait....no I don't! LOL
It's a good looking baby. Good luck with him.
Congrats with Yoshi! He is definitely a beauty! How do you know he is a boy?
We don't, it's near impossible at this age.
But...you have to pick something, otherwise you start talking about he/she and him/her. That's gets old fast. LOL
And "It" is a little too impersonal! LOL!
Zok was a "he" for a long time.
Until "he" laid eggs!
Yea, Gil was a "she" until I got a hemi flash!
Yoshi looks very cute. I would love to have one but don't know where to get it. Any Idea?
Unfortunately iguanas are commonly available. However you really need to do some major research before aquiring one. They are a very complicated and costly animal to keep. They don't stay little and cute for long. Do you have room for a 6ft square cage?
And should they decide to be aggressive they can do you some serious injury!
Thanks Merlin for answering me so quickly. Definately I would do some research.
Thats good. They are great animals if you are up for the challenge. The problem is too many people see the cute little green lizard and don't realize what they are fixing to get themselves into. Or believe the store clerk who tells them that lettuce and a ten gallon tank are all you need!
I have routinely cost petstores' sales by happening to be around with Zok when somebody wants to buy little Johnny the pretty little lizard. When confronted with the reality of what their purchase is going to become they quickly change their minds.
Not to mention they are banned in NYC and the 5 boroughs, including the Borough of Queens.
Please check your local ordinances and laws.
Also, you are spending money to buy your self into slavery! For 20+ years! Not everyone enjoys being a slave, think about it.. your master has a whip attached to them at all times, and an evil set of serrated scissors at all times to threaten and beat you when you do something they don't like. As they age, their weapons get stronger. (They really are sweet though )
I laugh because Yoshi gets a gourmet meal.
LOL I don't even make gourmet meals for myself.
"My Life Seems To Be Arranged Solely For The Comfort & Convenience Of My Animals"
My animals=15 snakes, 2 Bearded Dragons, 1 Iguana, 1 Argentine Black & White Tegu, 1 Australian Grass Parrot, 1 dog, 1 cat, 1 rat colony, 1 orange-head roach colony. (Sit down and relax: what's that?!)LOL
I love how you worded that!!!
