Rescue Me ID: 18-05-18-00126Green Iguana (male)

Reptile/Amphibian    Age: Young Adult

    This is my boy Zilla. I rescued him as a baby from a neglectful owner & have had him 2-3 years now. He's roughly 4%BD-5 years old. I love him but I don't have the time or money to give him everything he needs. I can provide some equipment & possibly his cage but I prefer you have your own suited for an animal his size, he's roughly 5' long. He's a HUGE boy so he needs a HUGE & Humid space. Adoption fee is to make sure you're serious & know what you're getting into & can afford an animal like this. It fan be negotiable to the right person. Contact me directly via email or text for more info or photos.

PIease Read Before Adopting Reptiles & More in Illinois
    Reptiles & More can make good pets in Illinois if they match your IifestyIe. Reptiles are interesting animals. Many types of reptiles and amphibians are kept as exotic pets. Snakes, turtles, iguanas, and frogs are popular examples. Keeping a reptile as a pet is a tremendous responsibility. Many reptile owners discover that owning a reptile is not as rewarding as they had hoped. Reptiles do not bond with people the way mammals can, and are sometimes neglected for that reason. Also, many people purchase young, small reptiles without being aware of or prepared for their eventual adult size. For example, Burmese Pythons are often bought as pets when they are about two feet long. However, many do not realize that Burmese Pythons are among the largest snakes in the world, with adults averaging 23 feet in length and weighing hundreds of pounds! There is now an established invasive population of Burmese Pythons in Florida due to pet owners releasing the snakes into the wild. Scientists believe these huge snakes will keep spreading out and will one day inhabit one third of the United States! Some owners are not prepared for the long lifespan of a pet reptile. Some species of turtles are known for their extreme longevity. Iguanas can grow to be six feet long and then live for 20 years. Sadly, many captive reptiles suffer from dehydration and kidney problems, poor nutrition, and all other manner of neglect. A person who is truly ready to commit to a reptile pet can alleviate some suffering by adopting an animal rather than purchasing new.

    The word Reptile comes from the Latin Repere, which means to creep. In the Florida Everglades, there are over 20,000 non-native reptiles such as Burmese Pythons due to people releasing reptile pets into the wild. Some kinds of turtles can live to be over 100 years old.
