In Reply to: Are Iguanas easy to tame n do they grow fast? posted by Nut on April 22, 2003 at 14:04:54:

A properly cared for iguana can grow about a foot a year. In the first 3 years especially growth will be fast. A 4 year old iguana can range between 4 to 5 feet in length. A full grown will reach the six foot mark, and can grow more.

As for tameness... it's not written in stone, but they are typically one of the better large reptiles to tame. Of course, it doesn't happen overnite. A couple months at least in some cases for one to be fully relaxed around you.

Males can be aggressive during breeding season. They will also grow the biggest. An iguana can be sexed with some certainty around 2 years of age.

A popular alternative for those who decide an iguana is too big for them is a water dragon, since they reach about 3 or 3.5 feet in length.
