March 16th marked the day I brought Esmerelda home. I’ve had her a whole year now and she has literally doubled in size in just 12 months. When I brought her home she was just 20 inches long and now she is 40 inches! 😀 

Maybe she is finally slowing down though, as she is still 40 inches like in January. Then again, the warm weather will likely give her a boost. 😀

I didn’t realize how big she was until I took a picture of myself holding her. She’s not just a big lizard anymore – she’s an iguana!
