LuvSocks for Male Green Iguanas
Compiled by Melissa Kaplan
Jamie Wang developed this "toy" for males in the throes of breeding season. Their use of this or other surrogates helps a male harmlessly relieve much of the frustrations and aggressions of the season for this polygynous species. It also gives them a target other than their female keepers on which to vent their energies. Individual male iguana preferences can vary. Iguana keepers have reported the following as the objects of their iguanas' passion: baseball gloves, inflatable alligator pool toys, stuffed plush animals, pillows, blankets, shirts, and jackets. In other words, pretty much whatever can be grabbed, straddled and dragged around. )
LuvSocks also makes a nice pillow for iguanas to sleep on...though you may want to first wash the sock cover after breeding season.
