 Oscar is turning blue!

My baby iguana is starting to have some blue on his face... of coarse i immediately googled it and it says that its not a color to be worried about...but why is he turning blue?? I’m trying to get a picture of it without him wiggling or freaking out and its not going over well. Out of all the pictures I’ve seen except the most recent entire blue iguana beauty, i’ve never seen it like this. Ugh. Stressful!

It’s normal as they grow older their colors change I have one whose face and neck is very blue and white compared to my other iguana who is still green and has some orange so it’s very normal as they grow older they get different colors.

We would love to see a picture! I have, indeed seen some lovely greens with blue heads. It would be so cool if Oscar turned out to be one of those!

Well its official, Oscar is getting blue on both sides of his neck. Hopefully he will be still enough in the morning for me to get a picture so y’all can see! I’m so excited!

Looking forward to those pictures! But a word of warning -- blue is hard to capture on camera.

Yes it is indeed. Along with his moving...the blue spots don’t even look blue!

I know what you mean. Teal is easier (as in with Tazumal), but trying to capture the blue on Kismet or Sebastian is really really hard!

Finallly got a couple of pictures of Oscar’s blue...Its hard to tell but I think you can definitely see it!





(: Had to catch him in the act of eating so he would be a little bit more still than usual!

He is very handsome! i do have one comment to make and that is that his food looks way too big for him, it should be chopped smaller. to about the size of the space between their eyes. its a pain to chop it by hand that way, so what i did was buy a food processor for $9 at walmart. makes meal times a breeze for Arokh...and Levi could eat a whole collard green in one bite so i dont worry about micing his food, i just rip it to pieces lol! congrats on your handsome guy!

Yeah it amazes me...without fail every time he picks out the biggest bite he can possibly find and when i try to take it from him, he whips he head and tail around like crazy. I will be sure to be more careful and make every bite smaller. Thanks for the advice!

your welcome, i know Arokh does the same thing. both with eating and being a brat haha. he is a super super brat though lol! he tail whips the heck out of me when i go in his cage...never bites though so i have to give him credit for that haha! im so glad we found Levi so at least i have one nice ig to cuddle! he is like yin to Arohk’s yang! but they are both young so we gotta give it time. all little children are brats so why cant iggies be the same haha!
