    I found that out. I started picking him up by putting my hands under his feet slowly and he don't even mind much.

    I use a Dremel to file Rex's nails. We've used it most of his life, so he is used to it.

    I use the same on Zok. But it might be a bit challenging with one that isn't quite tame.

    They make dremel type nail clipers for pet's? Have y'all heard of them?

    Not exactly. They make Dremel tools that we use on our pets. ;)

    Just use a sanding bit and slowly file the nail down.

    To secure the iguana, wrap it in a towel, covering the head, and pull out one foot at a time.

    I use a regular Dremel grinder too.

    They have come out with a dremel type tool for pet's nails called a "Pedi Paws".Pedi Paws - Official Site of the pet nail trimmer As Seen On TV
    I first saw them about the time I got my lab puppy. They advertise them as safe and painless so I decided to check them out. While they worked on tiny little puppy nails, they are worthless for anything heavier. Imagine trying to do an iguana's nails with an emery board!
    They have no torque, bog down and stop easily, and the safety guard makes it very awkward to handle. And with long ig toes it would not take much imagination to see it pulling them in and breaking them!
    I will stick with my standard dremel.

    Kermit doesn't like the sound of nails filing and she is so good with a nail clipper that i will always use a nail clipper on her

    I use a dremel also... much quicker, and it doesn't squeeze like the clippers do.
