I love my green friend! He will only come to me now, he gets into my lap and we watch HBO together. Lots of kiwi and collard greens won his heart and now I find him hanging out next to me almost wherever I am in the house.

@beatriz: Haha I just saw this pop up! Salt is totally normal, that’s like their version of sweating.

While I don’t have an iguana, I do have several bearded dragons, a savannah monitor, and some leopard geckos. I used to really enjoy exotics, having over 20 (chameleons, crested geckos, viper geckos, and other species).

They are a lot of fun, but at the same time can be a lot of work. I’ve slowly dwindled down my collection, but would love to still own another panther chameleon one day.

Exotics are pretty expensive considering all the things you buy. Lights have to be replaced every 6 months unless you own a UV Meter (I purchased one due to having so many UV lights), IR thermometers, all sorts of heating methods, including thermostats to control temps (heat mats get way too hot if you don’t control them).

We’ve got our saltwater fish tank now, and that’s a money pit too 🙂
