 Does anyone know what this might be?

We just got this baby iguana and noticed it had some brownish spots on it after getting it home. The worst spot is on its left side behind its leg.

You should post this in the Green Iguana loop. I don’t know what it is, but it doesn’t look good!

They look like warts to me cause from mites possibly and bad living conditions....

Best thing you can do is get him to a vet but in the mean time you can start treating him/her with a iodine bath..just make the water tea colored and let him soak for about 15 min..dont worry if he drinks some of the water it wont hurt him..after the bath take a Qtip and dabble some iodine right on the warts...do this every day for 3 days and every other day for 3 days..what that does is dries up the warts and if he has mite too it will kill them too..

And also clean the cage out everyday....with the spray mixture of vingar and hydrogen peroxide.... in separate spray bottles ...doesnt matter which one you spray first I always do the vingar first and then the peroxide..helps with the oder..let it set for about 15 mins and wipe clean....but really important to get him to a vet if you can...

It looks more dehydrated than starving. I hope the little guy is still alive. I wish the original poster would let us know!
