Once, while I lived in Palm Springs, a huge male Iguana was loose and running the city. It ended up in my friend\'s yard, who gave it to my dad, the bug/lizard/snake/everything guy. It was like 4 feet lond and gold colored. They say they were it\'s breeding colors......:) Cool or what?! :D

I really like them..now im thinking about getting a baby iguana. i had one when i was like 10 or 11 and he was so awesome. he would jump out of his cage in the morning and come lay down on my pillow right next to me.. he was really awesome. But when i went to texas my mom left the screen door open while I was at school and he got out. but since its warm down there im sure he lived for quite a while. i was really sad though. i had him untill he got up to about 2 ft. long.. he was really friendly. i think there so pretty.

I like lizards period. I had a bunch, a Mattagascare Lizard (green with red dots) named Lizzy (before Elmo got his goldfish, he had an Iguana named lizzy, and when I got her I was little, I mean really small, so I named her after Elmo\'s Lizzy). A, oh, now I can\'t remember what they\'re called, anyway, it was blueish gray with red spots, about seven inches long, and his name was Snappy, \'cause he would snap and squeak all the time. Then there was Gots Toes and No Toes, the Common Geckos. They were cool! Then a bunch of Fence Lizards, an Alligator lizard nsame Jettie, and I once babysitted a huge Bearded Dragon named Gandalf for a week! I love retiles! lol :)

Yeah, but they are pretty hard to keep, since their mouths don\'t open (because they have a snout instead of a mouth)the food that they eat has to be small enough to fit in their snout. on that last link I posted they have caresheets for them with the requirements for their tank setups, or go to the following for their forum:http://forum.seahorse.org/

Biology of Seahorses [Top]
A basic biology:- Seahorses are a fish, being a member of the Teleosts or bony fish group. They have a skeleton made up of bony plates, they use gills to breath and have an inflatable bladder to help regulate their buoyancy in the water.

Seahorse species vary in adult size from 2 cm to 30 cm (approx).

Identification of seahorse species is done by examining distinctive markings and colouration, the number of tail rings, number of fin rays and by the shape of the coronet or crown, cheek and eye spines

No, 1 foot would be approximately the distance from where your neck meets your shoulders to the top of your head (without hat).
