September 8th National Iguana Awareness Day
So, if you have an Iguana as a pet, today is your day to celebrate! Even if you don’t have an iguana for your pet, you are welcome to celebrate as well. They are very good pets, affectionate and if taken care of properly can live several decades in captivity (hence the awareness part of the day). Do be aware that Iguanas do not like cold weather, any cold weather, anywhere!
How to celebrate – Get an Iguana for a pet (but not if you live in cold areas which may even include places like Miami). Check with a Vet about the care of Iguanas. I’m not so sure about the affectionate part but if you like lizards crawling on you, go for it.
