Pretzel was fed an incorrect diet as a baby and had metabolic bone disease and multiple fractures along her spine.
Pretzel was our poster child until she crossed the Rainbow Bridge on July 4th, 2005.
Mortimer was turned in to the Sanctuary as a nine year old. He was fed a correct diet and is almost 6' from nose to tip of his tail.
When Stubbs came to the Sanctuary in 2004 and he was very lethargic, dehydrated,
had mites, and was starving. He was over nine years old, and stunted
as he had been kept in a small aquarium and fed only once a month so
“he wouldn’t grow too big!”. He spent over a month in intensive care.
He is very active, cured of his mites, has been rehydrated, is eating great and gaining weight.
Stubbs crossed the Rainbow Bridge on January 8, 2008 and is now "Basking in the Sun" on the other side.
The three condos on the right are 3 foot by 3 foot by 10 foot high and the one on the far left is 3 feet deep by 6 feet wide by 10 feet high. They all have a high basking limb and a mid-level platform with a shelter house as well as a bamboo shade area. They now have grape vines planted around them to provide more shade and something special for the Iguanas to nibble on. These are the first ones, we are going to build more of them.
Here's a picture of one of the male Iguanas in his breeding "Colors".
NO WE DO NOT BREED THE IGUANAS!!!!
The indoor enclosure is 16 feet wide, 24 feet long and 10 feet high.
There are lots of basking lights and limbs within
and many "condos" for the iguanas to climb on and hide in.
There is a window at ground level which can be opened and closed as needed
to allow the iguanas the freedom of movement from the inside to the outside.
The outside inclosure is 12 feet wide by 16 feed long and 8 feet tall.
It is totally enclosed in wire with two access doors.
There are many "basking" limbs and even a tree within this enclosure.
There are large water containers for the iguanas to soak in
and drink from as well as places for them to hide in.
The iguanas seem to be enjoying their new "Home" and are getting very fat!
Here are a few pictures of the outside enclosure.
