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