Also, the previous owners had a little boy who was a bit rough with Sparky, (which is why he was given to me) and he took him off of wherever he had been sitting too quickly when he would pick him up, and it ripped off several of his claws, and now all there is on some toes are just nubs on the end with no nail or any kind of base a nail would grow in at. I'm just curious to know if his claws would ever grow back? (By the way, the little boy meant no harm to him, he really did love Sparky, he just didn't know how to handle a pet, especially an iguana.)
To show how much my little Sparky warky has grown since I got him, before and after pictures:
(Taken the week I got him in mid to late December): *His tail had broken off before he was given to me*
(Mid-March, 2005): The spots on his skin in the picture are where he had been shedding the week before and the little bits hadn't all fallen off yet...
(March 24th, 2005):
The habitat he was in at the time of the pictures was only a temporary home for him, he now has a nice new custom-built 5 foot cage :)
..oh and the heat rock is only for looks, I don't plug it in.
Thanks in advance for any advice! :D
