My big iguana in the sun

Since the lamp in Zorro's home imploded the other day, I had to order a new one. For those who are not familiar with reptile equipment: I need a ceramic fixture that is heat resistant. I've got two 100Watt basking spots and a 150Watt ceramic heat emitter in his viviarium.

Because he seems to be in mating season, meaning being a lot more aggressive than normal, I had to get him out and roam around. Not that I was able to do a step without him chasing me. I grabbed him and sat him onto my bed, so he could enjoy the natural sun and look out of the window, then I climbed into his house to do the cable work.

Here are some pictures I've taken.

Top: He just lay down and threw his arms back. That's a sign of relaxing.
Middle: He doesn't like being touched and leans into my hand. One wrong move and I could easily end up in the A&E.
Right: you can see how big he is. My bed is 137cm
