Esmerelda grew just slightly over two inches this month. She is now just a little over 26 inches!

The cage I had a lead on previously fell through, but just when I had drawn out my own plans for an iguana cage, I found another one on craigslist -a better one. It was almost exactly how I had designed my own, but bigger. The people also gave me a great deal on a pile of other tanks and supplies too!


The cage breaks into three parts for easier moving. 

It’s 6 ft tall, 4ft wide, and 2ft deep.

It also has a storage space at the bottom which could easily be converted into another reptile cage!

Plus, it has display and heat lights built in. It even came with a timer so that the lights will go on automatically at a specific time in the morning and a specific time at night.

It came with all the basking branches, bowls, ledges, and the fake banana plant. 

The viewing space could be bigger, but this is something I could probably fix.

Now guess how much I got it for. Only $50!!! If you’re looking for an iguana cage, go to craigslist.com. I have gotten amazing deals there and this one is probably the best yet! You can even find iguanas in need of homes.

Esmerelda seemed a little awkward in it at first, but she warmed up to it a few days later. She likes to spread out on the top basking branch, her legs hanging off the sides.



A couple of my herps have shown an interest in music and it looks like Esmerelda would like to take up the electric guitar. Think I should sign her up for lessons?
