Artist's Description

All Pets Great and Small (2 Per Day)

This is my Giant Green Iguana she was 3 years old in this photograph but she is now 5 and fully grown. Green iguanas live up to 25 years if well cared for. They only eat rich greens. My girl is 5 feet and 10 pounds.

These animals are not endagerd, however, they are endagerd in the wild because of the pet idustry, the green iguana is being over hunted.
My goal with this photo is to show a healthy happy lizard, NOT to get you to buy one. In fact I am strongly against it. Most people don’t have the money, time or tolerance for the cranky iguana. They take 2-3 years to tame and cost a lot to upkeep.
these are tropical lizards and require not only special food and housing, but a vet too!
