9Why does my iguana stare at me?
Eyes When staring at something, it can also be a sign of wonder.
Head bobbing is common among iguanas and other reptiles. A slow bob may be a way of saying hello. A fast, more pronounced bob can indicate that your pet is upset or ill.
Mouth Your iguana can show how he feels by opening his mouth. An open mouth can indicate that he is too hot and needs to be relocated to a cooler location. A slightly open mouth can be a sign of curiosity. An open mouth can also indicate that your iguana is ill.
Your iguana’s skin may change colors. Color changes are often used to control heat in your irina. A darker iguana may be attempting to warm himself, and a lighter shade could indicate that he is too hot or warm enough. Color changes, whether light or dark, can also indicate sadness, indignation, or fear.
Tails are used as a weapon for defense.
