Welcome our newest residents! 21 Green Iguanas

(March 2020) The iguanas housed on SPCA Tampa Bay’s Largo campus used to be pets. In time they outgrew their owners’ capacity to care for them. Some of these iguanas are over 5 feet long and many live upwards of 12 years. They can be a challenging pet in both temperament and housing.

Effective April 29, 2021

Green iguanas were added to Florida’s Prohibited species list.  Learn how this impacts pet owners and other entities. Learn more from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Update March 2022: Learn more about the iguanas stay at our For-All animal shelter in Largo with this from the Tampa Bay Times.
