I've put a lot of thought into all of this. It seems that since I've even got my iguana, it hasn't been feeling okay. When I first got everything set up for him, he wouldn't move. A whole day passed without him moving. He had water, food, and a source of heat/light (with all that UV stuff). I showed him around by placing him near all the stuff and sometimes splashing him with the water and holding food in front of him, sometimes just placing it there. Well, he never would move. He never went towards the heat source (which everyone says he will). He never even noticeably ate. He might have once got in his water. It makes me wonder if I'm really the reason for his feeling bad. I'm irritated now, especially that it seems that the store screwed me over by giving me a sick-ish iguana.

By the way, I noticed a few bulges on its body. They're like, I dunno. Almost like wart-looking but hollow on the inside. At first I thought that they were just loose skin, but I'm not so sure now. It seems like one is keeping him from opening his eye. He has a lot of them, too. There's a small cluster on his left leg where they are, and it gets really brownish in color there as opposed to his bright green luster. I don't want to give him a death wish, but I'm not so well off financially and I figure if I can start over, I'd like to. It's just, I gotta figure whether there is any real starting over or not.

I dunno if the message has come across enough, but it won't eat anything. It won't sniff or lick or touch any food I hand to it or lay in front of it. So I dunno what to do there. I'll even leave it alone with food, small chunks, right in front of it. I don't see how it's my fault that it won't even move.
