Ever since I operated a reptile rescue center, I’ve had a good number of iguanas. Over ninety percent of newly purchased iguanas die within the first year, so their good health is very important to me. Fresh Vegetables and fruits are important to their survival.
I use a potato peeler to make long slices of zucchini and carrots and chop the other veggies into small pieces.
Above is a list of basic vegetable and fruits and the special treats that can be given on an occasional basis.
Their basic salad in the morning includes Collard Greens, Red Bell Peppers, Zucchini, Carrots, and Bananas or Grapes.
