Comparing Exotic Lizards For Sale: Blue Iguana & Savannah Monitor

April 26th, 2018 by

Exotic lizards can make great pets if you’ve done your research. Luckily for you, we have an awesome selection of exotic lizards for sale for you to check out once you know exactly which one you’re looking for. For now, we’re going to focus on two specific lizards we have available. The Blue Iguana and the Savannah Monitor are worth looking into as pets; however, there are a few details to consider.

Savanna monitors need room to grow. There is debate among reptile enthusiasts about how large the enclosure for a lizard should be. Everyone has an opinion, but in the end, it depends on the type of lizard. Savannah monitors, for example, can grow pretty quickly but its growth rate depends on how often its fed and the diet. To stay on the safe side, try to get the largest terrarium you can afford. Young monitors love to spend their time in trees so that’s something to keep in mind when building a suitable habitat.

Going big makes it easier to maintain temperature regulation and add essential elements to the environment. Small enclosures, however, come in handy because they allow you to examine the lizard as it grows. Just beware that the monitor, like many lizards, will take any chance to escape. Make sure that even if it does escape its enclosure, it doesn’t escape your home, since these reptiles are banned in some cities and may require to be registered in others.

The Blue Iguana is known for its large body and is not suitable for everyone. If you do have the space and equipment to give the blue iguana the quality of life it requires, you’ll find that these are pretty amazing reptiles. If you’re looking for extremely rare and exotic lizards for sale, the Blue Iguana is one to have on your radar. Their diet consists mostly of plants, fruits, and vegetables; although they won’t shy away from larvae or slugs.

When it comes to temperament, you can’t always expect a specific type of lizard to act a certain way. Blue Iguanas are known to have pretty good temperament but these rare lizards have individual, innate personalities. The approach to setting up an enclosure is similar to the Savannah Monitor, but feel free to set up an outdoor pen if you live in regions where the winters aren’t too severe.

Back to Basics with the Common Green Iguana Reptile Pet

September 22nd, 2015 by

There are very few people who own reptiles today that have not at one time or another kept a Green Iguana as a reptile pet. I can say that I had a tame five-foot Green Iguana roaming my house and sleeping behind the couch. He was paper-trained and a delight to have and was the first thing people wanted to touch and look at. That was over twenty years ago and as of late I have been looking at having another pet iguana. Luckily today there are a number of different locality and color variations of the Iguana including: hypos, Blue Iguanas, Red Iguanas, Albinos and a number of up and coming mutations.

When I first started looking into exotic reptiles for sale I had the opportunity of purchasing a group of imported Green iguanas from a local importer in Homestead Florida. I placed an ad in the local paper, as this was a time before forums and classifieds and come to think of it the Internet as a whole. When I got home later that night there were a few messages on the answering machine (yes answering machine) and to my surprise all of them were sold by the weekend. This got me started in the reptile business and twenty-five years later Green Iguanas are still a hot topic and have tons of potential as a future of this hobby and business.

Iguanas for Sale at Our Online Reptile Shop

In South Florida Green Iguanas are a common sight on the sides of canals and roads. They have walked a fine line between introduced exotics and pest but for the most part no one is complaining when they see one basking or head bobbing next to the pool. The overall population took a big hit in the winter of 2008 and 2009 but they seem to have rebounded and are found regularly by hobbyist and collectors across south Florida. We do not condone the release of pet Iguanas into the wild and recommend proper housing and adoption of your unwanted animals.

On our online reptile shop we currently carry the Red Iguana and the Blue Iguana and will be adding albinos to the line-up of our Iguanas for sale in the coming days. Please feel free to contact us with any Iguana hatchlings you may be selling in the near future as well as any other healthy and quality reptiles you may have for sale.
