Live in Wa State and considering getting a common iguana. Researching as we speak btw and looking for a reputable breeder around here. My vet is going to send me caresheets on it. Although I am handicapped I can transfer its food and water and if there is food that the iguana eats that needs to be cooked then that can be done in a microwave oven or with a crockpot. For veggies and fruits that need cutting I use a knife that is designed for one handed use for my own food prep. Have an aide that comes in three to four times a week to help with housework. She has had an iguana before and she knows of someone else that has had one also. So she knows quite a lot about them. If I get an iguana then I do not want an iglet that was just hatched. Would want one that is somewhere between six and eleven months of age. Reason for that is that you are still able to bond with it and iguana is just about ready for checkup at dr's. Want male vs female because males don't lay eggs and females do. Oh and btw. Iguana would live "single and celibate".
