Hello! My name is Diamond
I am not good with kids.
Please contact Kathy (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information about this pet.
Diamond is about 5 years old. She has all of her fingers and toes and all of her original tail. Diamond is always looking for a way to escape and when I open the cage door, she makes a flying leap out the door! She does not like to be touched and will roll and wiggle to get out of your hands. Diamond is about 3.5 - 4 feet long total length. She has a slight offset jaw, probably from prior MBD issues. She eats well and is trained to poop at the bottom of her cage, but there are a few "accidents" on her shelf if she is feeling especially nervous. Diamond is best adopted by an experienced iguana keeper who understands and accepts iguana behavior.
Rescue Group Info...
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.
Most of the iguanas are fostered by me, Kathy, the President. Visits are by appointment only.
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.
Primarily the Metro Twin City area of St.Paul/Minneapolis. We might be able to ship via Delta Dash depending on the availability of volunteers to arrange for shipping. Typically, shipping is $100 and about $30 for the crate.
