There is no such thing as a junior green iguana unless you are saying he was young. Are you sure you aren’t the same person posting about the skink that was killed by a cat? Either way, what has changed in your life that would prevent another iguana getting killed by a cat in your home?

Iguanas grow between 5-6 feet usually. Growth rates vary but I’d say in 5 years you’d have a very large iguana if you give him the right care. (diet, lights etc.)

Here is a friend of mine with Sleestack when he was around 5 1/2 years old.

Nevermind about the skink....you just weren’t the first to post this week about a cat killing a lizard.

I’m glad to hear you have a new cage.

Here is a photo of me & Lizzy. He is 5 yrs. ( November)and is 52 in. long. Lizzy is a cross between a Blue and a Green and turns bright orange during mating season. The photo was taken at ARS exocitic animal rescue service who operates on donations and foster cares for several iguanas located in Northeast Ohio.

Merry Meet,
Oh Thank you so much for posting the pick of your purty baby ! A year old huh !! Well let me ask you this...do you think that after four homes and mistreatment that an Iguana can become tame ? Thats what i am dealing with here...LOL
Also...when I finally got her under some good lighting and some good food she started growing the spikes immediately..and now they are about 1/4 long....mind you I have only had her a little over a week now. Does that mean she might be older and her growth stunted , or does that mean the lighting just helped the spikes grow ? i was just wondering...because it loooks like she has gotten SO much bigger since we gt her. Thanks so much !
Blessings, Gypsy in Alabama

Well since you’re providing her the right stuff, she’s probably just getting everything she needs so she’s growing.

And I’ve heard ig’s that aren’t fed right or aren’t given enough Calcium, they growth is stunted...But I don’t know exactly..

MM,
Thanks so much ! Let me ask this though...as i am the fourth owner of this sweet baby, is it going to take MORE time to get her calmed down ? i ahve heard that iggys have a 6 month memory and if I just hold out 6 months things will get better...she will forget her mishandling and mistreatment...has anyone else heard this before ?
I posted pics on a different thread, you can see her there !
Thanks so mcuh and Blessings, Gypsy

Gypsy....I think they have a longer memory than that. Igs don’t forget (much like elephants...lol) However, I think she will feel comfortable and thrive with you, but she will not forget the bad treatment she received necessarily. If one of her previous owners came by or you took her to their home again a year from now, she would be very upset and probably not let you forget about that for days after! They know what they like and who they don’t want to see again!

actually yeah, iguanas have a HUGE term memory, they remember everything, including their names, i have a 8 month old blue iguana, who was maltreated by the previous owner, so naturally he dont like anyone cause i had him merely 2 weeks, so he is slowly getting used to me, and i cant even allow the previous owner to step in the same room as blue, or he freaks out and bashes his face into the tank, which can be very dangerous for them. so yeah, they get angry, and stressed so i dont recommend their previous owner visiting if they maltreated your ig, or it can cause stress.
