Our Iguana Helps Reduce Our Carbon Footprint

It's true!

When Chuck brought home Danatella aka Donnie we were so excited to have a new member of the family. The previous owner - a bachelor more concerned with drinking beer then taking care of the Iguana - fed her lettuce and oranges. Unfortunately Donnie was malnourished due to her poor diet and she broke both her femurs.

On the upside our vet got her all fixed up and we researched the proper diet for an Iguana.

Turns out she eats all sorts of things that we would normally throw in the compost. She eats the green carrot tops, when my kids have watermelon Donnie eats the rinds same for beet greens, the leaves off of cabbage pretty much anything that I would normally compost.
