    So I would remove the bark, you don't want him to ingest anything. Normally we use carpet or paper towels.

    Does he have a water bowl in there? You want something big enough for him to get into and soak. They don't usually drink from a dripper. They will get most of their water from their food or will drink from their pools while bathing.

    Since there is no way to add a shelf I would suggest putting a small towel or a couple of wash clothes as a temporary basking shelf.

    Here is a link to enclosures

    These are some iguana basics.

    Also do you have a UVB for him?

    He is a cute little guy, they are worth the effort. Does he have a name yet?

    Nick has put together a nice baby cage, this might be a good one for you to consider.

    He has a very beautiful house. I thought that maybe he could get stuck between the branches and the bridge. And so there was a hematoma.


    Ann gave good references. Therefore, I will not repeat myself.

    Is there a lamp sitting in the upper right corner above the iguana?
    In the yellow circle, is that a lamp or a shadow of something? It looks close, so if it's a lamp it could be causing a burn. I can't measure the distance visually, but you can measure and tell us how close your iguana is to the lamp.

    Also, can you tell us what kind of UVB lighting you are using?
