My iguana, mergi, is about eight months old and is fat and healthy!! mergi eats quite a lot and scurries around through the day (trips to the waterfall, trips to the food bowl...). mergi is bright green and about 7 inches nose to vent. a baby, but a baby that is growing by the minute!!! if you have a proper habitat and are looking for a decked out iguana (comes with waterfall, food, food bowl, lights (heat/uv), branches, rocks and more) for a small adoption fee and discussion on proper iguana ownership mergi is all yours. mergi was a gift and unfortunately i travel too much to keep the little rascal.
