    Based on a client report on 5/1/99, this clinic's iguana care sheet handout is very outdated, recommending significant amounts of animal protein. It sounds like the same one I got from them almost 10 years ago! If they have updated this since, please let me know.   05/10: outdated/inaccurate monitor (Varanus, especially V. exanthematicus) care information.
