Please contact Kathy ( for more information about this pet.

1/25/2014: SmartyPants is a four year old male who has an attitude. He likes to whip his tail and death roll, but if he learns that you won't take 'no' as an answer he will eventually give in. He had a skin infection a few years ago, and went off feed during his rehab which may be the reason why he is so small, but he is healthy as can be now!

08/03/2014 SmartyPants had an unfortunate accident at his foster provider and had to have three toes amputated. He is currently recovering very nicely.

SmartyPants is an accomplished escape artist. He will need an extremely secure cage, especially if he is to spend any time outside. He escaped his outside enclosure twice and injured his toes in the process.

05/08/2015 - SmartyPants is fully recovered from his surgery. He still has plenty of attitude! He is a gorgeous male who is better suited for an experienced iguana keeper.

He is located in St. Paul, MN and will not be shipped.


About Resource for Iguana Care and Adoption

About Our Rescue Group...

Our primary mission is to educate the public on the proper care and husbandry of the captive green iguana. We foster surrendered iguanas while we try to find a permanent home. Iguanas are not easy to care for due to their highly specialized care requirements. We have a rigorous screening process to weed out the people who are only interested in the "cool" factor, or unable/unwilling to commit to the necessary care of a green iguana.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Most of the iguanas are fostered by me, Kathy, the President. Visits are by appointment only.

Our Adoption Process...

First we review you knowledge base of iguana husbandry. We make suggestions or corrections. We require that the enclosure is in move-in condition. A vet familiar with iguanas is required. We can make recommendations. A home visit is performed, or if out of the area, detailed photos are accepted. Our adoption fee is $75 or a spayed female is $100. An adopter has to be over 18 years old and a contract is signed.
