    Iguana bite

    Guys, I want to share the stupidity that led to the injury. Today was a good morning. Boris came up to me. I gave him a massage. But when the massage was over, Boris got into a fighting posture, as usual. I must to move away from him.
    But I lifted the edge of the blanket to protect myself from it. And I did not expect a throw. Boris jumped and bitten the blanket where my hand was. Just one bite - and I lost part of the finger.

    Now it's all over. I visited the hospital and stitched my finger.


    I should drink antibiotics and anesthetic and visit the hospital daily to do a wound dressing.

    Irina you poor girl. That looks very painful dear.

    I can't believe you took pictures first.

    You should rest and care for your finger.

    Anne, I thought that the photo was needed to warn other people.
    I made a mistake. If you use a towel or other fabric, you must be sure that it is very high. Because Boris was angry when I picked up the blanket. And I saw it. But I did not think that he would jump to a height of 50 cm.


    Those. If you use a towel or a blanket for protection, you must take the initiative. Fast movements to protect from the bite, but grab the iguana to prevent a chance to bite.


    My behavior is stupid. It was like a bullfight. I had a blanket, but I gave Boris a chance to throw himself at me.
    My name is Irina. Sorry my mistakes in English.

    Guys, thank you very much for your concern. Excuse me. I can not be at the forum today. Any movement of the hand causes severe pain in the finger.


    Yes. Marianne. It is a piece of a finger that has been bitten off.


    I try to get better sooner. Probably tomorrow the pain will be less. My arms to all of you.

    Oh my goodness, Irina! You poor soul! I felt pain just looking at it! I hope the pain goes away quickly and that it does not get infected. all I can imagine is if he had bitten you without the blanket there, how much worse would the damage be? I hope Boris learns not to do this to you again in the future! Ouch!
