Actually, there are medical evidence on iguana that died from eating too much animal protein. Once in a long while probably won't kill them, but green iguanas are strict herbivores. There has been quite a lot of study done green iguana because they are so popular, and it all suggested that they are herbivores. However, they will eat strange thing in captivity much like the way dogs do. They develop some kind of behavior problem in captivity much like the way dogs living with human. But for Uromasytx genus, they have been kept not as long as some other lizards in the pet trade, so there hasn't been enough info about them. But it seems some do feed their Uro insects with no ill effect for years and years.
