My husband got me and ig for my B-Day last week. I picked Spike, the ig, out at the pet store. They told me he was a Mexican Spiney Back or Black Iguana. I have looked at a ton of web sites, bought 2 books and spent hours at the library and I can't find but 1 pic "Iguanas For Dummies By Milissa Kaplan". The pic is bottom of facing chapter 18. Spike is around 8 to 9 inches long not including tail and too skinny, I think, he seems to have a lot of loose skin.

I need help with ID, diet (he is get getting ig salad now and does not seem impressed, he only take a couple on bites) and anything else.

I fell in love with this little guy when I first saw him and I want to keep him healthy and happy. I don't feel the information I got at the pet store was correct and I want informantion from some experts.

Sorry this is so long but I am worried and do need help.
