Hello! My name is Calypso
Please contact Kathy (email@example.com) for more information about this pet.
11/24/2011: Calypso has added much needed weight and is now in his first breeding season! He has still retained a lot of his vibrant green color. Calypso is somewhat easy to handle, but he puts up a fight at first. Be patient with him and he will settle down.
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.
