    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.
    My name is Irina. Sorry my mistakes in English.

    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!
