we lost Tashmoo to an operation to remove eggs she couldn't pass
on Auguast 23, 2003.
I received my
new little girl on Wed. May 23, 2001 from David
Blair in CA. She is gorgeous, smaller than I thought, but
awesome! She is relatively calm. Jumpy when you try and catch
her but she settles down in your hand. Click here to see her journal.
We took her
to Martha's Vineyard with us the first weekend we had her. She
did really well and rode all the way there in the car on my arm
the window at the scenery. Once we got there she settled right
into the 10 gallon temporary tank we set up for her. It didn't
seem to phase her that it was such a small space. We took her
out a lot on a little leather leash we had gotten for her on the
way. She doesn't seem to mind it at all except for trying to scrape
it off once or twice. It allowed us to get her outside for some
We named her
after Lake Tashmoo on The Vineyard. We just liked the sound of

watched the Indy 500 on Sunday May 27, 2001. She was looking for
my friend Marian of One-

didn't get to see her but she had fun nonetheless watching all

Wow, I can't
believe how small she was back then. It is now March of 2003 and
"Moo-moo" is 31 inches long overall (13.5" svl)
and a hefty piece of iguana. She freeroams with Pugsley (Male
Green Iguana) in his room now. Allowing her to freeroam was the
best thing we ever did with her. She tamed down in no time once
she was taken out of an enclosure. Her and Pugs are getting along
fine for now. We shall see if that continues. I keep a close eye
on them to make sure she isn't becoming too territorial with him.
Pugs is NOT an alpha iguana and will most likely let her push
him around the bigger she gets.
