13Do iguanas eat meat?
If Irma’s diet is high, other foods may be harmful to them. They are kale and spinach.
Kale is high in goitrogens, and too much of it can cause thyroid problems. Spinach has a high oxalate content, and too much of it will bind the Iguana’s calcium absorption (as with all reptiles). Both kale and spinach are extremely helpful as part of a varied diet, and MBD (metabolic bone disease) can result.
Lettuce is another fruit that should be consumed in moderation.
14Do lizards bite humans?
The wall lizard, or gecko, is not poisonous in any household. It only checks insect population. When he was trying to capture it, a two-year-old boy was handed a lizard bite over the right hand. Within two hours of bite, the child had experienced excessive sweating and irritability. He was treated with supportive care.
