Pet Of The Week: Emerald

By Hope Bidegainberry on September 5, 2019

Calling all reptile lovers!  We have the perfect pet for you.  Meet Emerald, a young female Green iguana.  Emerald isn’t fully grown yet, so expect this lizard to reach at least six or seven feet in length once she is an adult.  She’ll need a special living environment including the proper enclosure and heat lamps.  Because Emerald will require specialized care, only experienced reptile owners will be considered.  She is extremely friendly and enjoys being handled.  Emerald also loves her veggies.  With her bright green skin and perky personality, Emerald is sure to charm you.  Looking for a social lizard to brighten your day?  Ask for Emerald ID# A865745.
