Iguana Room - Tunnel and Outdoor cage COMPLETED

Postby wildheart » Tue Mar 15, 2011 3:43 pm

After 2 years I can finally say that we are finished and that I am happy in showing Forest's completed setup. I mostly waited for his plants to grow - very hard seeing that they are under iguana attack every single day!Image

Here it is, I hope you enjoy.

That is one stunning cage / setup / hotel. He looks better than any single iguana I have ever seen.

I notice he is alone. Have you thought of getting him a girl friend?

Beautiful. Few questions though. How do you mow the lawn inside the outdoor enclosure and how do you prevent him from eating or just simply destroying all the live plants?

I have yes but it will only be for breeding and then she must go again. Forest is EXTREMELY possessive with ALL his stuff. I once helped a guy with his iguana and when I came home Forest went absolutely crazy - he physically tried to attack me just because of the smell that was on me. I had to go shower immediately. :shock: I also looked after a female iguana in the room next to his for a couple of months, Forest was only a year old then. The females smell triggered him into breeding season that lasted a total of 7 months, this is abnormal for such a young age.

Iguanas are lone animals so he does not miss a friend, but I will have to get him a girlfriend this coming season because his seasons lasts too long and he has severe bleeding from his hemipenis.

The outdoor enclosure is large enough for the lawnmower to fit in so no problems there. :D I bought the plants reasonable big and they are handling his attacks very well, I think all the rain we've been having also helped a lot. The only mistake I made was that I bought 5 hibiscus trees in the beginning and he killed them within the first month.
Here is a photo of him attacking the last poor hibiscus tree Dec 2009.

I've also planted his herbs everywhere in between the plants and he loves foraging on the ground.

He loves his petunias the most so I plant the seeds and when they are big enough I hang the baskets in his cage.
