i live in turkey.. and they dont care much about iguanas, or any animal for that matter.. over here.
the other day i was in the pet shop and they had a very sickly iguana for sale. it was skinny as anything, you could see all her bones, she had no muscle on her legs at all, and im sure she had mouth rot. the salesman told me it was from a fight she had had before, but i dont believe that.
hes got it on sale for 700 dollars.. and if i had that kind of money i would buy her and nurse her back to health.. but i dont have that kind of money.
i know 100% that the iguana is goin to die in there.
he also told me hes feeding her on cheese and lettuce. i told him basically everything hes doing is wrong, but he didnt listen.
is there anything i can do about this? i really want to help it but i dont think theres anything i can do without buying it.
this might be a pointless question but thought i would ask anyway.
