Building your own iguana cage is cheaper than buying one, and it allows you to customize the cage to your iguana's needs. You can build a cage with different levels, or a split cage to house two iguanas. No matter what size or design you choose, there's a simple way to put together iguana cages with items from the home center or hardware store.
Leave the cage outside for 48 hours before putting your iguana in it, so that the polyurethane is completely dried. Be careful about attaching an iguana light to the plastic roof panel. If the light's housing gets too hot, it may burn a hole through the panel.
If you're building a particularly large cage, consider adding some extra supports across the bottom, so that the screen isn't the only thing supporting your iguana and its habitat.
Just what do iguanas eat? These herbivores eat a variety of plants in the wild. If you've got a pet iguana, you'll need to offer a variety of fruits, vegetables and greens to keep it healthy.
