well chomper i mean.. yea he does i mean i take a showe rand he waits in the bathroom till im done and my hair is washed then i put him in and he has a like loofah scrubber thing on a stick that i scrub him with to clean him up LOL... chomper i bought him for $40 from a friend. You can get them in pet stores genereally they are very small cuz they sell them cheap when they are young. Some however can be aggressive they do bite and whip, but if you arent scared of them you know you can tame them.. chomper is very tame, that you cna pull her tail kids can pull on her or run up to her and she just looks at them. she doesnt bite or anything.. they can hiss.. but chomper has never done that. the only time she has whipped is when i chased her with the vacuum ! other then that they are pretty neat creatures.

GOSH, YO - THEY BITE AND WHIP? WITH THEIR TAILS I PRESUME - NOT WITH A LITTLE WHIP IN THEIR HANDS (WHICH IS WHAT I WAS INITIALLY VISUALISING WHEN I READ THAT! ;D). BUT GOSH, YO - I DON'T WANT A NASTY VIOLENT SPIKY FROG. I WANT A SWEET FRIENDLY ONE. HOW DO YOU TAME THEM, YO?

they take alot of handling .. some babies are just born docile some arent... chomper when i got him he has always been tame.. i had a reall small baby one that we called baby girl she fit in my hand and was tame as could be.. she died because the little guy we had "mr man" refused to let her eat and he would whip her and break her bones... but if you find the right one and read up on them im sure you could find one thats right for you. Just have to get them a bit young,, alot of young ones are a bit fisty but they do tame down with work. :) if you have the time to care for them they are great pets.

HAHA - WELL, I THINK MOST BABIES ARE UGLY, BUT THESE IGUANA THINGS ARE ADORABLE, YO! GOSH, SOMETIMES I POST CUTE FROG PICS AND PEOPLE THINK THEY ARE UGLY. NO ACCOUNTING FOR TASTES, YO!

AND GOSH, ARE THEY HORNY? WILL HE TRY TO RAPE ME, YO? CAN YOU GET THEM NEUTERED? ;D

AND LIKE HOW LONG CAN YOU LEAVE THEM ALONE? LIKE IF YOU GO AWAY FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS, CAN THE IGUANA LOOK AFTER HIMSELF OR DO YOU NEED A BABYSITTER, YO?

well yes they do go into heat. and well... a male.. i mean chomper isnt like OMG HUMP HUMP.. i mean for the first time this year i saaw him hump a pillow... it was something i dotn ever want to see again (hence the reason i finally figured out SHE was a HE) yes you can get them neutered or spayed. Females to lay eggs like Asexuals (you will know LOL) do but they do not obviously have babies inside.. I mean you CAN leave them alone for a few days but their fruits and veggies are always given FRESH so you would have to have somehow a fresh supply for them to eat while you are gone. Usually if i leave town someone will come to feed chomper when i am gone as they do have like pellets that are specifically for iguanas that look like dog food they can eat but some iguanas will refuse to eat them.

GOSH, YO - I'M LOOKING AT THOSE SITES AND I'M NOT SURE I'M READY TO OWN AN IGUANA. I QUOTE:

Are you empathetic?
Will you do your best to put yourself in your iguanas shoes? Can you comprehend that an iguana is trying hard to be a part of your world, despite the massive differences? If your iguana is grouchy about something, can you put yourself in his/her place and try to understand what the problem is?


HAHA! GOSH, YO - SURE, I'M EMPATHETIC, BUT I'M NOT SURE I'D BE ABLE TO EMPATHISE WITH AN IGUANA. LIKE HOW ON EARTH CAN HUMANS KNOW WHAT IS INSIDE AN IGUANA'S HEAD?!

and yes frankie wasnt all that friendly to being with, I had to talk to him before i could pick him up.. and feed him bluberries and grapes to get him to like me but i dont have to do that anymore... now he just loves me. My baby iguana (Kaylee remember.. gizmo) was a right vicious little thing though, he didn't like me. Even when i fed him treats and talked to him. He wasnt happy with me :( He had a major attitude problem!!! LOL... I thiknk we clashed, haha
