>>ok so ive had my Iguana for about 10 months now and he's only like a year old. ive pretty mcuh only been feeding him green leaf lettuce and he seems to be fine but then i started reading more about what to feed them and they say to add some fruit but not too much fruit and to give them some of the mineral diet foods but only some and im sorta lost.
>>So i was wondering what you guys feed your Iguanas to keep them healthy?

Green leaf lettuce lacks enough nutrition to go the long haul with iguanas and MBD is so very not fun to treat!

I have several species of iguanas here and they all get this diet.

Our diet consists of a base of greens. My guys prefer the greens to be chunky. The green base is about 40% of the diet. I rotate between several types. Collard, Dandelion, Turnip, Mustard and occasionally Kale.

Other veggies that I mix in are rotated by what looks good and available in the store. This is also 40% or so.
Parsnips
Yams
Winter squash (mine prefer carnival or acorn)
Green beans
Ocra
Occasional summer squash in small amounts (I usually chop and store separate because of high water count)


Fruits also vary by what looks good. This is around 20%
Raspberries
Strawberries
Prickly Pear
Cactus pad (prickers must be removed)
Blueberries
banana - this is a treat and gets the most stubborn kids to eat
Plantains
occasional sliced and skinned apples and pears

All of my iguanas are also provided with rep cal pelleted food as well.
