I completely agree Marisa. And to be honest, I have no idea why iguana's are ignored. Yes they were a faze by the general public, same as RES, but in my opinion, iguana's are easier to keep than monitors.
I got offered a free iguana, and I was all for it. However, my mom didn't want it in the house because she's afraid of larger herps.
So I try to open my home as much as possible, but when you have someone you have to ask permission to that isn't very into the herp world and doesn't understand that there are some herps that are thrown into shelters and abandonned because of the "FAZE" people...it's hard.
