Thank-you for ur advice before. My iguana is 11 months old and I have been told he should be getting protein. And ee should be giving him mice and crickets. He has never had these before just wondering if this is correct.
The lady probably got it confused with water dragons. Many that do not know much about reptiles have that problem. They are of similar size but the iguana is veggie and the water dragons are carnivores. I have had both. Iguanas are easier to feed because of them being vegetarians but I think the water dragons bond more and have more personality.

NO! No animal proteins. None. Whoever told you this is wrong. Do not give your iguana any insects, worms, or mice. None. Go to the link and read the menu that will show you how to form balanced diets. Sorry if I am a bit harsh, but I get upset when I hear wrong information for these iguanas. Animal proteins can cause renal failure or worse.
