'' We have seen no differences in growth rates or survivorship between hatchlings fed feces from adult Iguanas and ones that are not. Sufficient microflora for proper digestion is probably obtained from the crickets and mealworms that are sometimes, but not always fed to hatchlings in the first few weeks. In fact, in the 1999 hatching season no insects were fed at all and all of the hatchlings are developing normally. Interestingly, C. nubila seem to really relish crickets and mealworms, while C. cornuta youngsters consumed them rather sparingly. ''
