After getting cut to pieces last night trying to measure Esmerelda, it turns out she didn’t even grow an inch! All that pain for nothing. Still 40 inches.

I don’t know what got into her, but she was really grumpy last night and didn’t want anything to do with me.

Maybe I should have been keeping track of girth too. I can tell that her throat and dewlap have gotten wider and more prominent. She is really starting to looking like an adult Iguana. I can’t believe that in March, I will have had her a whole year.

She has literally doubled in size since the first day I got her. From 20 inches to 40 in 12 months. Wow.
