Ok i've had my igg for a while and i know im know expert but...i feed my igg collard and mustard greens,i also feed him fresh kale. He is health and i dont just give him greens. The trick is to have a good ratio of cal.hos.! i give my igg all kinds of other fruits and veggies! u just cant over do it!! Mine LOVES yellow squash and Yellow bell peppers! but i also give him snakes every now and then...like tonight for instance he has mastered using is litter box...and as he knows he will get a treat for using it! so he got his kale mustard and collard greens and he got grapes and carrots! They learn real fast if u reward them! anywayz the way to prepare their food is easy...i pre-cut my greens and ziplock them! and its alot easier when i have to feed him! Three times a day is alot of greens and once they get to a certain length they will start to eat about 3 times their weight in food...its normal! i just make sure that he gets enough excercise and enough sun and so far health problems have been rare...oh and one more thing although iggs have a strong jaw they dont really chew their food so it would help your igg when eating if u cut his food up..like his treats and stuff...i cut the greens also!
well i hope this wasnt to confusing and good luck!!
always,
Hunter of DS Reptile Rescue
P.S. they also need a heat lamp and a u.v. light!
