We have a small collection of materials that you would need in order to keep a pet iguana - and no iguana. So for anyone who wants to get an iguana, you can get all you need in one place. We have:
-container of adult iguana food
-vitamins/minerals supplement powder
-75W night-heat bulb
-125W day-heat bulb
-13W UV sunlight bulb
So my fiancee's father calls and says he found an iguana outside of where he works. And we're like, you don't see that everyday. So we figured he must have been an escaped pet! A two-and-a-half foot iguana, a few years old, just landed in our laps. We tried in vain to find an owner, so we kept him.
Things were going well, and the iguana was finally starting to get used to us, when we took him outside to get some sunshine...and the reptile a-hole runs away. Broke our hearts. Like seriously, we thought he liked us and he jumps 16 feet from our deck (her apartment is on the 2nd floor) to the ground and runs up a tree, never to be seen again.
We curse his name. We spit on his memory. And...*sniff*...every time we see that iguana food and the heat lamps, we are reminded of...THE PAIN. Also, that little betrayer cost us 60 bucks and then ran away. What a jerk.
Since we had opened the containers of food, and taken the bulbs out of the boxes...and this is Craigslist...we're not going to ask for the full 60 we spent. We used 1% of the stuff, and the bulbs were only on for A FEW HOURS. They're pretty much new.
DON'T GIVE YOUR HEART TO A REPTILE. THEY ARE COLD-BLOODED
