I posted before about a spiny tailed iguana my husband had gotten me for my B-day. I was very worried about how I would house him when he got big so I traded him for a dwarf club tailed. this was about a week ago. the club tailed is only a baby about 7" long from nose to vent.

I have three different green iguana books which aren't a lot of help and there isn't a lot on the inter net about club tailed iguana care.

The new iguana was skin and bones and I am have trouble getting him to eat. Sunday he ate but only because I put his salad in mashed banana, just to get some food in to him, Monday the mashed banana salad dressing didn't work. As he started eating I was going to cut back on the dressing until he was eating just salad. Today I made a regular salad, collard green, moist alfalfa, green bean, a couple of peas, and carrots, fig,rose petal, all dices up in to tiny pieces. I put this on an ice pack so it would stay fresher but he doesn't have to stand on the ice pack to eat.

Any suggestions on how to get him to eat?

Also when he poops he is only pooping the white part. I am going to give him a warm bath to day to see it that helps. If not what should I do to help him?

Thank you all for your help. Sorry this is so long.
