National Iguana Awareness Day

September 6 is National Iguana Awareness Day!

Although it was officially dropped as a holiday in 2001, we’re keeping it going to promote education of proper care to owners and pet shops.

The motto of National Iguana Awareness Day (or NIAD) was “Hard to Care For, Easy to Love”, as iguanas require complex care but can be very lovable.

Some interesting facts about iguanas:

  1. Adult iguanas are herbivores.
  2. Iguanas can be prone to metabolic bone disease.
  3. Iguanas are very strong creatures.

    “Iguanas can be prone to metabolic bone disease.”

    You mean they are prone to have owners who know nothing of proper care and lighting? Iguanas are no more susceptible to MBD than any other reptile.
