Very cool! how much do they cost and are they hard to care for? Awesome work Donna.
Thanks for all the kind words on my gallery I really appreciate it so much! #5175737

Donna La Mattino Pagakis December 06, 2007

Thank you for all of your great comments! It was nice to take the camera out again!! The dial popped off my camera that changes the modes, so I just used the auto setting in super macro. Now you know why I am reworking so many images. I'm afraid I may make the camera worse by using it the way it is.

These baby iguanas cost $30.00. They are vegitarian and eat once a day.

My daughter adopted an iguana from her school last year. Allison is about 3 feet long (from head to tail). I usually take care of her though. I take her out for a walk whenever I can, usually every couple of days. She is very sweet.

Thanks again,

Donna #5175857
