At age 1 he/she would be starting to develop the more mature colors. |
Morphs and hybrids , are bred specifically for a particular color , by breeding and matching up green iguanas with particular traits , some more blue, some more red. Just the way a dog breeder pairs certain puppies with the hopes of getting the blue ribbon prize at the dog show.
So any intentional hatching would mark an egg for a particular color ig.
Many igs have variaitons of colors tho, some turn orange by age 2, others have blue heads and areas of the body that are blue, Some have white colored heads with pink features and so on.
A lot has to do with the area they originated from , which can also affect size and body shape, some being boxier and others being long and lean.
If you got your from a breeder or a pet store, its possible they got the color mixed up as hatchlings dont display their true adult colors for a year or more but most of the morps are not the bright lime green thats typical to average everyday green iguanas.
