Iguana Iguana is devoted exclusively to the green iguana. This user-friendly edition contains 81 color photographs. Information covered includes reproduction and captive breeding; normal and abnormal behavior; safe and effective methods of restraint; prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of nutrition-related diseases; the development of metabolic bone disease; infectious diseases and non-infectious conditions; parasitism; ophthalmic disorders; miscellaneous causes of anemia, skin diseases, abnormal stool, and color changes; tail and claw disorders and care; and fractures and their management. An entire section includes information on scoliosis and kyphoscoliosis; an admonition against purposeful cooling to achieve restraint; and material on normal physiologic values, sources of reptile-related products, and fluid therapy, including intramedullary (intraosseous).
