Correct Heating Is Very Important For Green Iguanas Sep 29, 2018

Reptiles are cold-blooded animals, meaning they cannot produce their own body temperature. Reptiles must provide heat or cooling to themselves through the surrounding environment, and this behavioral response is called thermoregulation. Temperature regulation means that when a reptile feels too cold, it moves to a hotter area, such as a sun-backed spot in the sun, or a south-facing hiding place, and when it feels too hot, It will move to a colder area. When we shut up reptiles, we have to provide a cold zone and a hot zone so that the animal can regulate its body temperature as it does in the wild. The green iguana needs a sun-back point of 95-100 degrees Fahrenheit (35-37.8 degrees Celsius) and a cold end of 80-85 degrees Fahrenheit (26.7-29.4 degrees Celsius). If the animal is warmed during the day, the temperature can be safely reduced to 70-75 degrees Fahrenheit (21.1-23.9 degrees Celsius) at night. The best way to provide a place to dry is to use a dry backlight. A branch should be placed on the underside of the heat lamp to provide the animal with a place to dry. Be sure to isolate the bulbs or place the bulbs where the green iguana can't touch them so they don't burn themselves. Proper heating is important to maintain a healthy immune system and normal digestion.
