When you bend them to fit in the box, their tails shouldn't bend much because it can make them break as they try to move around. Adult igs need a large box. Multiple igs might bite one another during a 2 hour drive. I used to use a duffel bag to transport igs. You put just their bodies in, letting their tails be outside the bag. As I remember, it was escape proof. This also seems good for transporting multiple igs at a time because they are less likely to bite each other in the dark soft bag. But if they do fight, there will be torn skin, blood, and vet bills. Individual bags would be best, but do what you have to do. |
If their placement on the porch does not get direct sun, I would call it good enough for now, day and night.
Iguana care is not intuitive. Do you know the basics of keeping iguanas healthy and safe? Food, lighting, Relocation Stress, dehydration?:
Go to the top of the Green Iguana Society message board and click on Green Iguana Society Home. It has a good care sheet. And this is a complete iguana care document: http://www.anapsid.org/pdf/icfs.pdf All of us here would agree that you need to read all of this. It will save you the heartache and expense of sick and injured iguanas.
There is seldom a good outcome from keeping multiple iguanas. You need to know all you possibly can.
