EnRICHing the iguana/keeper relationship through accurate care information and compassionate re-homing.
Adoptable Iguanas Please take a look at our wonderful adoptable iguanas! They each have their own personality, needs and requirements. Some are suitable for first time iguana keepers, some are only for very experienced people who understand and accept aggressive iguana behavior. Unless otherwise noted, we believe they are in good health.
We are located in Minnesota and do not ship. We are willing to deliver to surrounding states for a transportation fee of $75. Our adoption fee is $75. You must be 18 or older to adopt.
Thank you for choosing adoption!
Zeus when he was surrendered
Zeus 2014. About two years old
Do you have a place in your heart for Zeus?
Our vet has determined that because of arthritis in the left elbow, Zeus will need to be on pain meds. We are giving him .15 cc's of Metacam daily. We have noticed an improvement in his disposition. He takes his medicine well!
Anyone adopting Zeus will have to be comfortable adminstering oral medication.
Update: After three months we brought Zeus in for follow up bloodwork. The results were not encouraging. His organs were being negatively affected by the Metacam and our vet determined it was better to discontinue it. Zeus is eating well, and still moves around, but we don't know what his long term health will be. A potential adopter must be willing and able to have his blood values checked at least twice a year.
Update: 3/5/2018 Zeus is doing very well! There is someone who is interested in adopting him, so you might be too late. Check back for updates!
Chappie is a youngster
Chappie was surrendered in the Spring of 2016.
Last Fall, Chappie entered his first breeding season. He didn't express much in the way of aggressive behavior, but he did go off feed. He has since gained his appetite back!
Juno was captured outside
Juno is not tame
Juno was captured outside in July, 2016 in Southeast MN. His age is unknown, but he is the size of a 4-6 year old. He is not tame and prefers to be left alone. He likes to stay in his hide box. He can only be adopted to an experienced iguana keeper who understands iguana behavior and will accomodate Juno's need for privacy.
Crimson might be a "red" phase designer iguana
Crimson was surrendered with Clover in August 2016. He was in poor condition, but has gained needed weight. He is a typical young iguana who will run away and whip his tail.
SmartyPants lives up to his name!
SmartyPants had a rough start. He was rescued from a pet store where he contracted a fungal skin infection. He was treated and his skin has healed very well. During his rehab, he was off feed and so he might be smaller than he should be. His personality makes up for that! He will whip his tail, but other than that, he is fairly easy to handle. He's a fast one, though, and he can get away from you before you know it! He is consistently using the litter box. SmartyPants has a great appetite now and is currently in shed.
Update: 08/03/2014 SmartyPants is an accomplished escape artist. He got out of his outdoor cage and injured himself. He is in recovery now.
SmartyPants is fully recovered and full of spit and vinegar! He is very feisty and needs a firm but loving hand.
Maybelline was surrendered October 2013. We are not sure of her age, but she is probably between 3 and 4 years old. She was very skinny when she came in, but has gained enough weight now so she is available for adoption. She is tolerant of being touched and handled.
