Cyclura Iguana Environment

While Cyclura Iguanas have a lot of similarities to Green Iguanas they are a bit different in terms of space needs. Whereas a Green Iguana needs a lot of height to climb the Cyclura need more floorspace. They will climb to some extent but not like a Green.

Housing
Ideally Cyclura should be kept in large outdoor enclosures with access to the sun for much of the year in a southern state such as Florida. We cannot all live in Florida so some of us have to think about viable indoor caging. Keeping an adult Cyclura of any species in a conventional tank of any size is not a reality. If this is your plan you need to seriously rethink getting a Cyclura. When planning for an adult Cyclura think room sized enclosure.
