About Iguana

Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

My neighbor got Mr. Grinch (previous owners name for him) from one of her students because it was not being cared for properly. She is afraid of reptiles and knew I have had them in the past so I offered to take him in. Unfortunately whatever the previous owners did made him very unfriendly/aggressive and stunted his growth from keeping him in such a small cage and had no room to grow, and was very thin. I don't like to cage my animals so I let him roam in my room until summer hit and the heat made him more active and he became destructive. I put him in our spare room to roam freely without causing as much damage but has made him less interested in interacting with anyone. I spent many months trying to make him friendly or at least less aggressive but we are still having trouble. I recently had two more family members move in my home and already have 3 other animals to take care of. I feel horrible giving him up but I have too many people and animals to take care of already and don't have the time it will take to make him less destructive and at least manageable as well as less space now. I don't have the heart to cage him or the money to make one big enough I wouldn't feel horrible confining him to. He is bigger than the picture provided now and he will lay with you and let you pet him it's just a hard process getting him to that point and it doesn't last more than about 10-20 minutes. I've had both an iguana and a savanna monitor in the past but both I raised since they were babies and were absolutely wonderful. Unfortunately getting him after years of being with a horrible owner and my other responsibilities right now I think it's best he goes to someone that has the time and experience to give him a better life. He is supposedly around 3 or 4 now and with the right person can hopefully be a great pet I'm just no longer in a position or have the space to get him to that point. I feel horrible letting him go but I have sick people, a teenager, and multiple other animals I've had a long time to take care of so something has to give and he deserves a good home. Please only respond if you have the time and resources to take care of him. He's been through enough already.
