I just purchased a new 3ish month old green iguana from a local reputable petstore in upstate NY. Upon inspection, he seemed very healthy, but once I brought him home, i noticed something strange about his front right foot. It seems very swollen. The claws and phalanges seem to be fine, but the metacarpal part of his foot seems to be quite enlarged. It also appears to be very firm. He seems to have full use of it, it just looks different. Could this be a symptom of metabolic bone issues? PLEASE HELP
