Iguana cage: finding the perfect one

Iguana cage: finding the perfect one

You need to be well educated with the right information about iguanas to care for them. They are available in many stores at low prices; you can buy an iguana for only $10! However, just because your iguana is inexpensive, that doesn’t mean its care will be cheap. If you are fully prepared to care for your iguana, you may find yourself caring for it for most of its life.

You should never let your iguana just roam around your home unsupervised. Accidents can happen; the iguana can end up spreading salmonella bacteria around the home and can ruin your carpet and furniture. Sometimes the iguana can get stuck in small cracks and corners around the house. This would make it difficult for you to find him as they cannot bark like dogs or meow like cats. This would also make it difficult for the iguana if it gets stuck and can’t get out. How do you prevent this from happening? Buy a cage for the iguana. Durable cages are the best option because iguanas have long lives. So if you end up buying a durable cage, just know that it might cost you a bit. You can choose to build a cage for your iguana. If you decide to do it, it’s best to use wood. Stick to hardwood 2x4s and stay away from aromatic woods. Other building materials include plexiglass, plywood, and tempered glass.

Most iguanas are active and usually large animals. Because baby iguanas are small, you can place them in a 55-foot aquarium. However, green iguanas can grow to the usual sizes of five to six feet in length. The cage should be tall, full of tree branches for climbing, and should have plenty of ground space to move around. When you buy or harvest your branch, make sure it has been sterilized with bleach and water. The cages should also be filled with substrates such as newspaper with soy-based ink, AstroTurf, and bark chips.

Iguanas are cold-blooded animals that cannot supply themselves with the necessary amount of body heat. They have a constant need for good heat, so the cage should be well warmed using a lamp with fluorescent bulbs and UVB. Give them some room to bake at 95 to 100 degrees. If you put a small branch there, they will be happy to roost in that area. In the evening, a lovely temperature between 70 and 75 degrees is perfect for sleeping. Stay away from hot stones. These rocks can burn your poor iguana’s belly! If it’s over 70 degrees outside and you choose to provide your iguana with direct sunlight, that’s great too. Don’t rely on sunlight coming through the window, as the glass blocks some of the UV rays. Also, only provide direct sunlight for iguana cages. If you don’t buy a cage and your iguana is in a tank, the tank can actually overheat and kill your iguana.
