>>Should I take him back to the pet store and ask for another? I don't know what to do...All this is making me feel so horrible. My warranty hasn't ran out yet on him and I know they had others, at least a few in separate cages if it is a parasite.

If it is a parasite, the others have it as well. I would suggest a vet visit. If you exchange it for another, I would suggest you pick the one that bites you and is most active. Baby iguanas are not mellow in the least and if they are mellow, they are more commonly sick. Shipping them is stressful and hard on their systems. Here is another link How to pick a healthy igunana

Remember many pet stores are not excessively well verse in reptiles. Parasites are easily treated with a trip to the vet with a fresh fecal sample in hand. If you need help finding a vet try these to sites Herp Vet Connection, Association of Reptile and Amphibian Veterinarians, User submitted list at MK site

No matter what you do, a vet visit is suggested with in the first few days for any pet store purchase.
