-> I would like to propose a statement about iguana diets.  Is it safe
-> to say that virtually nothing should be offered every single day,
-> because there is bound to be *something* about it that doesn't
-> necessarily add to the health of iguanas?  I think the problem with
-> finding suitable foods for iguanas is that they don't eat any of the
-> things that we buy for them at the grocery store in the wild.  (Bad
-> sentence, but I'm sure

    I've been feeding Vanna A LOT of dandelions lately because the price
is right and she really seems to love them.  She will scoot across her
cage for them and dive right in.  I have collards and parsley in the
fridge but she really sticks up her nose at parsley.  I like the
dandelions because they are absolutely fresh.  I pick 'em she eats 'em -
whole process 10 minutes.  I sometimes wonder about grocery store
veggies sitting around in there for a while and then in the fridge at
home for a while longer.  Maybe I'll plant an Ig garden this summer and
let her graze.

re: ig diet and I am not going to key in the whole thing!

There is an ad in the Reptiles & Amphibians Mag for an iguana salad garden!
Sounds like just the ticket!
By the way, Jazzy tried to eat the carpet yesterday - guess she wants fiber
:):).
Gloria and Jazzy                            Sitting on tops of things is the
