Bobbing can start at any age. As it is typically used in an aggressive way or to assert dominance, and it is generally executed by iguanas who are secure in their surroundings.

Reproduction in the iguana is difficult, involving the interplay of temperature, light cycles, humidity, season, and the availability of suitable nesting sites and more. Although iguanas are often sold as a “beginner pet,” they are not. The question of whether it is necessary to spay pet iguanas is of particular concern at the moment.
