    My sons girlfriend asked if we would take their lizards. Since we can't seem to say no to any animal...they are now our new pets [​IMG] If I had known how cool these guys were, I would have had some a long time ago. We believe they are both girls.

    Thanks!

    We used to have Iguanas and I really liked them. Except they could be grumpy and bite and were a little more sensitive to health issues. These guys are so calm and easy going, its great.

    I just am not sure how old they are. Everything I find on them, says to feed them 1-2 times a day when young and every other day when adults. I think these two would eat all day long if I let them. I have been giving them some greens/fruits in the morning and a few crickets at night and they eat like they are starving. Not sure if this is typical or if they really are hungry. Don't want to overfeed them though.

    I'm not sure about feeding them. I've had a snake before, but no other reptiles.
    Iffin it were me, I would probably feed them in small amounts daily until someone can confirm their age for you. I know there are several good reptile forums. Maybe someone there could offer you advice on their age.
    Good luck with them.
