Well, not like geckos, they are pretty flat under there.
Hmm, well here's something on sexing iguana:
Sexing Iguanas
I think they are male, I searched and it said desert iguana boys also have leg pores just like those pictures. I'm clearly seeing what I think are leg pores on your photos.

Reptiles are the worst pets ever for kids. No one seems to realize but, yes, reptiles are freaking boring. They couldn't care less about your existence. It's a one way love, and most people can't appreciate that kind of animal. :/

I can xD hahaha. You don't need to walk it, you don't need to clean every day (some reptiles like beardies you do), some you don't even have to handle. It's more of a....look at me animal

I was asked what was a good beginner pet, and truthfully... I'd have to say bearded dragons. ONLY if they are a FAMILY pet not the child's pet. Beardies are generally friendly, great with kids, mellow, cool looking, and educational in some ways. But other than that... there really isn't a beginner pet. Even fishies are more intermediate :/ FAMILY pets are beginner pets. Not hamsters. Or birds. Or fish. Or reptiles -.- I hope "Jim" the bearded dragon can be around when I have kids.

Yea, as desert animals beardies can be a little confusing to a newbie.
I like the ball python, no UVB/A stuff to worry about, heck I can go on vacation and not handle him for three weeks and you wouldn't know that he hasn't been handled for that long. :D So friendly.
If you don't mind spending but have less time, reptiles. If you can't spend as much money but have lots of love and patience, something small like a hammy.

Exactly lol.

These fellas are my roomie's rescues, and because they are extremely rare here, and he's called a few vets all of which don't deal with iguanas...especially THESE ones.


Also, these fellas are not very active... :/ I know that is bad as they should be very active and quick.

Well the things I'm reading say their basking spot needs a surface temperature of 44C, with air temps ranging from 27-31C. Hot. I didn't realize they make lights that hot. :s

You would be surprised xD My roomie refuses to up the temperature (current only at 80 >:( Although the air in the house is like 28, and the cage air is at 30 >.> ) but I'll make him. They have a heat pad, heat lamp, and hidey spots.

Apprently body temperature has been recorded of 45, which is above the lethal range for most reptiles... o.o
