Marisa, I think the requirements of iguanas are more difficult than the more carnivorous monitors. Far easy to thraw a mouse in, than chop up a well balanced salad. Easier to keep frozen mice in the freezer for months than go out each week to purchase the freshest veggies. Also iggies need more space for climbing, while many of the monitors are pretty terrestial.
