Helmeted Iguana Forest Health Information

Forest Helmeted Iguanas should be kept in large enclosures that allow room for climbing, since these lizards are arboreal by nature. Provide full spectrum UV lighting for about 13 hours per day. Ambient daytime temperatures should be about 85 degrees Fahrenheit with a basking area in the low to mid 90s. Nightime temperatures should be 75 - 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Humidity is also important, and levels should be kept high. Water should be supplied by misting and in a water bowl. Helmeted Iguanas have a varied diet in the wild, and can be fed a variety of foods in captivity. Some good choices include arthropods, crickets, earthworms, lizards, mice (pinkies and fuzzies), and spiders. It is also a good idea to add a multivitamin supplement and calcium to their diet.

The Forest Helmeted Iguana has no set breeding period, and has been observed to breed throughout the year. After mating, females lay anywhere from as few as 6 eggs to as many as 11 in a single clutch. Eggs are usually laid in moist areas. After gestation, babies are born measuring between three and four inches in length.
