It's me again. So here's the problem. Today, my mother turned all the heaters on in the house because it was super cold. She forgot about the one in my room with my iguana in his tank. I don't know how long it was on before she realized it, but apparently he was holding his mouth open and hiding in a shady spot but it was BURNING UP in my room!!! she turned the heater off at some point, but she just left him in bis tank in my smoldering room! When I got home from school, the temperature in his tank was approx. 120 degrees. I immediately removed him from his tank ( he was no longer holding his mouth open or anything, and he did fight me a bit like usual because he isn't quite tame.. ) and turned his lamp off to cool his tank down faster. I held him for a bit, then put him in a warm bath so he could poo (because I read that hyperthermia can make it difficult for them to go) and he did, but not much. He's still active like always, but he seems a tab bit slow... It could just be me freaking out, but I'm so worried! Is there anything I can do? How much damage do you think it caused? Any help at all is appreciated.
