Meet My 19 Year Old Iguana

For today’s Wordless Wednesday, I want to introduce you to my iguana Buddie. She’s a 19-year-old (she’ll be 19 on the 4th of July) female green iguana. We’ve had her since she was a year old and she’s had quite the adventurous life.

Bloggers! Do you have a Wordless Wednesday post this week?

  1. Oh My Gosh that is the biggest iguana I have ever see, however, m son had one he raised and ended up finding him a home in a pet store where the owner let him roam freely. I have often wondered if he is still there.

    Joanne, please stop by and share on the #OMHGWW this week!!
    Hope you enjoy your week!

  9. WOW, she looks HUGE! She has outlived my cat. I think we had her 15 years. My husband would be so jealous.

    Man on man I would be so freaked out to have that in my home. But not my men they would be overjoyed. I do have a WW and I hope you will stop by as well as I love making new friends.

    Oh my goodness!! Hes beautiful. I use to have an Iguana that I rescued from a rescue centre, sadly he died after 3 years. He was very poorly when I adopted him and I knew he wouldn’t live as long as he should (previous owners treated him more like a dog) but he had a really good life with me, he was spoiled rotten. I miss him SO much.
    I enjoyed this post very much! Thanks for sharing.
