Where Do Iguanas Sleep?

April 8, 2023

Often they sleep higher up in their habitat above a pan of water, which provides security and humidity.

They can also be found sleeping in the shadier areas of their cage or in the trees around their habitat. It is important to provide them with a warm environment and food that will promote their healthy growth, development, body repair and immunity.

Diet and Food

Green iguanas eat green leaves, flowers, vegetables, fruits, and meat if provided. They can also eat baby chickens if given the chance.

5% FRUITS: Iguanas love fruit, and will pick through their diet to find them. However, it is recommended that they only eat a small amount of fruit as this can lead to weight gain and health problems.

Iguanas should be weighed regularly to help determine if they are healthy and growing properly. Iguanas can grow 30 - 60 cm per year.

They can live 15 - 20 years when cared for properly. It is best to seek a veterinarian that handles iguanas on a regular basis and is up to date on reptile medicine.

Behavior and Personalities

Iguanas are social animals, and their personalities vary widely. Some are quiet and peaceful, while others can be aggressive and domineering.

They are nocturnal creatures that sleep during the day and are awake at night. They need 8-12 hours of sleep each day to be fully functioning pets. If your iguana is not getting enough sleep, he may become lethargic and ill.
