Green Iguana Anatomy Resources
©2000 Melissa Kaplan
People are interested in anatomical pictures and diagrams for a number of reasons: general interest, school reports, and trying to understand the implications of captive care issues and what the veterinarian has said top the list. Unfortunately, finding what you are looking for isn't always that easy. Public libraries rarely have the resources, and there may not be a university library or veterinary medical school library near you. There is, to date, no web resource with full anatomical information and illustration for the green iguana. The following resources may be available to you, however, if you look for them.
Anatomy of the Iguana
Many of the available veterinary medicine books, including those on radiography and internal medicine, have diagrams or photographs of x-ray films as illustrations. Contact your local reptile or exotics vets to see if they have such books and ask if you can make photocopies of them. Some books include:
Medicine and Surgery. Douglas R. Mader, DVM, editor. 1996. W.B. Saunders.
