Oh so I'm not the only one with issues regarding my pets. Whenever I feed my iguana he's fine and chillin' and when I try to pet him he doesn't like it he just tries to do anything so I don't pet him. I can feed him by hand but zero petting
nice design! Yes, I've done a lot of research after my ig bit me that I ended up at the hospital. Igs by nature, especially the males, are extremely dangerous animals - and this is so with those who have dominant alpha male personalities (yes, I learned there is a caste system among wild igs and it doesn't leave them when they are kept as pets or born in captivity). It's not so much that they hate you - they are wild animals no matter what and don't loose their instincts.
yes you are right,igs are beautiful cool animals but not pets.but i have heard that there are two types of ig :iii and iir, most of them are iir.iii are biger , clever and meeker .but it is hard to get iii. my ig must be iir,when i put out my hand, it alway run or scratch me.its' claws are very very shap. but i have also seen some igs behaves very docile like a cat. i don't know how it can be.perhaps the second generation and the third generation would have less wild instincts
I talked with several reptile experts and all said no matter how many generations you go, it is part of their DNA to either be submissive or dominant personalities. No one is going to breed it out of them and it is a big chance one takes in having one - hoping you get a non-aggressive. That is why they have that heavy skin and scales around their neck - it's part of the creature they are. I know once my current ig dies, I will never have another lizard again - wild animals need to be wild (even if bred, they will always be wild).
I love how all of the plants, and even the grass, are actually normal sized compared to the iguana. So he's in fact the normal human-sized one and the humans are just incredible small. That's definitely interesting and new. At least I can't say that I have seen much like that myself. Love it!
