Natural Habitat
Green Iguanas: The Basics

Origin of Green Iguanas
Green iguanas originate from the rain forests of northern Mexico to southeastern Brazil where the temperatures and humidity are high. Iguanas live in the trees and bask in the sun. They eat only vegetation: up to 50 different kinds of leaves, flowers, and fruits. Their captive environment must duplicate this as much as possible.

Captive Care
Beginner's Guide to Pet Iguanas

Hi! I'm Steve Ford ("I'm not an expert, but I talk like one") and this is my iguana care guide for new iguana owners. It is intended to be short enough to be read at one sitting. It should get you started on the right track, but you will need to obtain more complete information as time goes on.

Captive Care of the Giant Green Iguana

By Edward M. Craft Introduction: The (giant) green iguana is an arboreal (tree living), diurnal (daytime active), lizard that is found in Central and South America. It is by far the most popular of all reptile species currently being kept in captivity. These lizards are herbivorous (plant eating) and require a plant diet that is high in Calcium and low in Phosphorus.

Care of the Green Iguana - Valley Vets Limited

The green iguana (Iguana Iguana) is one of the most frequently purchased reptiles, but is unfortunately also the most frequently seen reptile in the veterinary surgery due to disease caused by inadequate diet and husbandry. The owner is not often given proper information as to the needs of the Iguana when the pet is acquired.

Love My Iguanas - Green Iguana

Caring For Your Green Iguana-I am more than happy to answer your questions through email, but first please read my care guide below, you will probably find the answers you are looking for right here. Introduction Any information or advice on iguanas that you follow (including mine) that is not obtained by a licensed professional, you are using at your own risk. The care guide that I have written is the guide that I have been following for the last seven or so years. I am only a reptile hobbyist, not a veterinarian, zoologist, etc. so please keep that in mind. I cannot guarantee that your iguana will live to be 20 years old and 7 ft. long if you follow my guide because I am not a trained professional and that would be unlawful. I can guarantee that I have two beautiful 5 ft. long, very healthy, happy iguanas that live comfortably under the conditions I will share with you in my other information sections. My care guide comes from a combination of information I receive from my veterinarian and numerous books and articles I have read on iguana care. Feel free to bring my information to an experienced reptile veterinarian before you follow any of it. My care guide will give you the basics on iguana care. Use it along with recently published books and a good reptile veterinarian. My links page also offers links with great information. Good Luck to you and your iguanas!

The Iguana Pages -

After all, it's all information about the same animal family (actually, eight separate families - read The Iguanids for details), so you might as well be able to visit one web site and have it all available right there.

Napoleon The Iguana's Home Page -

This page contains the story of Napoleons rescue from a pet store in Sept. of 1996 and onward. Napoleon was a very sick lizard when we got him, and I've detailed the kind of rehab care that he had to go through to become the strong healthy iguana that he is today. Along the way I've learned a lot about iguana care, behaviour, intelligence and what a wonderful entertaining creature an iguana really is. I hope you enjoy his story and learn more about iguana care from this site.
