Iguanas

Iguanas as a pet or as an unwanted critter?

Iguanas are not native to Florida, yet have become quite popular in many communities in the state of Florida. The landscape and access to fresh water make Florida living very attractive to iguanas. There are three common types of iguanas found in Florida including the green iguana, the Mexican spinytail iguana, and the black spinytail iguana. Many iguanas started as household pets but now that they roam free they have become quite a nuisance. They can destroy infrastructures including sidewalks and foundations and as well as damage vegetation. Iguanas are herbivores so they love eating all your plants and vegetables.

Iguanas can vary in color and size. Some iguanas can grow to be up to 5 feet in length and range from 7 to 17 pounds.

Even though many think that iguanas are cute and fun to watch their damage can be extensive.
