Default Desert iguanas

Hi, I went to a three hour course at shuttleworth college yesterday. It was about caring for pet lizards. We had a talk and then we got a chance to handle and feed their lizards. They had a group of 4 desert iguanas, they were really interesting to watch and nice and calm to handle. I am now researching their care requirements and possibly looking to get a few later this year or next year. Does anyone on here keep these how do you find them to keep and could you add a few pics of them and their setup

Thanks for any replies

I did but I have been told the I would have better luck posting it in the main lizard section as the photo section is kind of for people to post pics of their animals

I also have just the one, who was a rehome and is skittish, but they are very rewarding if you get them right. The above posted caresheet is the best, it's what I was given and it was written by a forum member. They like it hot! I can post pics if you would like to see him
