Species: (Ctenosaura pectinata)
Origin: This animal originates from Central America and parts of Mexico.
Size And Longevity:
This animal is use too desert or tropical like weather and are fairly large in size lizard and I don't recommend this lizard for the novice as they are all pretty agile and all though they are pretty shy at first with proper care they seem too tame pretty well, they are also fun too watch as they are very interesting and very active animals, if you are use to handling the common Iguana then you should have no problem with owning this animal as a pet and like the common Iguana it is also arboreal meaning it enjoys climbing but unlike the common Iguana it prefers to feed on insects instead of vegetables.
This animal is a fairly large size lizard and full grown gets to be a size of 4 to 5 foot in length, and are very active, these animals are also diurnal meaning they are mostly active at day and are usually a whitish gray or tan color with dark blackish stripe dorsal bands and a crest of large spines down the back and keeled scales down the tail.
Habitat And Caging Requirements:
This species is usually quiet easy to keep as they do not require a large amount of space to keep and seem to do well at a temperature of around 77 to 84 degrees Fahrenheit, 1 adult animal can be kept in a 40 or 50 gallon tank or vivarium and are best kept one male per setup.
You can decorate the tank with wood, live plant's, sand substrate and rock's, this species seems to do best in a or tropical like aquarium or vivarium type setup with a basking area and some moss, chola wood for hiding places, and a water dish large enough too climb into, and keep the water clean by changing it every other day, also keep a water spray bottle handy to mist down the setup every 2 to 3 days and this will also help with your' pet's shedding, they like it tropical and moist, some people also use a small heat pad at one end of the setup so the animal can move to and from heat as it needs, keep a spray bottle handy too mist the animal down daily also.
Temperature And Lighting Requirements:
You want to use low wattage bulbs' for best results' to avoid over heating of your' pet as over heating could cause your' pet to dehydrate, these animals' seem to fair well at temperatures of (77 to 84 degrees F.).
Feeding And Nutrition:
For feeding your' this animal prefers to eat up high in limbs and will readily eat crickets', meal worms, super worms, fruit flies, and wax worms but will also enjoy fruits such as melons, berries, and dark colored vegetables such as keel also.
Handling And Care:
"Alright for the care and handling of your pet", I know these little guys' are so cute that your' going too want too handle them all the time right?, but when you first get them it is a good idea put them in their new home and mostly enjoy watching them get use to their new home and feed them well for at least a couple of day's which is really a good idea for any new pet that you get of any kind and then gradually start too handle them from time to time, this is called acclimating your' animal which cut's down stress which in turn make's you have a happier healthier pet, this species is a bit shy and may take may take a little while for it to get use to it's new owner so start handling them a little at a time, also add limbs and wood for your' animal too climb.
