"I'm posting this because I hate going into a pet store and seeing the iguanas eating calcium covered lettuce. A store clerk saying "Yes they are easy pets" and there's always a kid there thinking they can get an iguana and just feed it lettuce with a calcium supplement sprinkled on it. Iguanas are a high maintenance pet due to their diet. As a kid, my first iguana died shortly after bringing it home from the pet store, probably due to a poor diet (Yes, I was told they just eat lettuce with the calcium supplement). After doing a lot of research, I bought two more. Even after feeding one of my girls a variety of fresh fruit and veggies and the calcium supplement, I still had to take her to the vet and found out she was calcium deficient. I ended up having to give her calcium shots daily, and then making changes to her diet. She turned out to be a healthy sweet girl who I enjoyed owning. Another false statement that I hear in a lot of pet stores is that iguanas only grow as big as their cage or aquarium. That's another lie. I started off with a decent sized aquarium, which my girls quickly got too big for. So I bought a bigger aquarium, which they quickly out grew. I ended up having to build a giant cage that was the size of a walk-in closet. I still think they are beautiful animals, but a little high maintenance."
