What is your view on the tumblr user Iguanamouth letting their pet Iguana naked Wasabi free roam around the apartment? Isn't free roaming a bad idea for reptiles? :c
With iguanas, it seems to be acceptable to free roam as long as you are prepared to deal with the issues such a set up creates. As long as the animal’s heat, UV light and humidity requirements are being taken care of, and there are precautions in place to keep the animal away from rooms where food is being prepared (both to prevent the iguana from eating something it shouldn’t and to prevent it from contaminating food with salmonella), then I don’t see much of an issue.
It should be noted that I’m not an iguana keeper and can’t really speak from experience on this. My research, however, informs me that free-roaming an iguana is difficult and time-consuming but certainly doable. As long as you have an iguana-proofed room, a top-notch humidifier, and a suitably warm basking spot, it seems to be a workable system.
I don’t follow iguanamouth so I can’t really make a judgement on their iguana’s living conditions, but just free roaming the animal isn’t particularly questionable.
Any reptile keepers want to chime in on this?
