 Biting my head

something smells good ...or attracts them to both the items you mentioned...especially the carpet thing!!
many iggys are prone to trying to eat the carpet...we suspect it looks like the earth...and they might want to eat some dirt for the occasional mineral content.

In the spring, summer, fall when I take Maxine outside she is allowed to eat dandelions and mallow and mint in the yard... and the infrequent bite of dirt. Look to some tortoise diet pellets and hay grass that is safe to feed ( alfalfa/timothy hay) ...HERBIVORE diet.

You may also like to add a reptile vitamin to the diet ...such as HERPTIVITE a few times a week. Just a pinch you know.
