Flavia,
in Malaysia, that could prove to be difficult. If you can find the equivelent of the society for provention of cruelity to animals , you might get some where.

Our ig is eating and is active but still needs to gain sufficient weight. Thank you for asking.

Let me know if I can help further.
Sincerely,
Brian
SFCRC
:I completely agree with you Brian, but report to where? To whom?

:Im living in Malaysia and the owners of some petshops here seem to think that iguanas dont need to be fed!Few weeks ago i went to a huge pets fair where lots of animals were on display to be sold.Almost all of them were healthy and gorgeous.But the igs!I saw a few baby igs literally dying of starvation!!One of them stop breathing in front of me!The poor baby was completely brown!When i called the owner she smiled and answered :" I didnt realize the food had already finished!".Hypocrite!These igs were without any food for weeks!A friend of mine took some pictures to send to the local newspaper.
:Thank you for your advices!Ill follow them!How is your iglet doing?#################################################################

::Hello Flavia,

::I agree with ra tzu (of the Klingon Empire) that the owner should be shot and although I probably would have done the same thing, Was it a good thing? suppose the Idiot in questions says to her/himself I should get more of these 'insect-eating' lizards -they sell. This should be followed up in some way that the situation is not repeated. This incident MUST be reported.
:: By the look of your picture, your ig looks exactly like a rescued Green we have right now at the SFCRC (Southern Florida Corucia Research Center). In addition to feeding (she/he needs alot) have your ig examined for parasites. We have ours on antibiotics.

::Good luck and please post how he/she is doing.
::Sincerely,
::Brian
