hehe, yeah they look like someone cross-bred a rabbit with a gerbil. And they are actually more closely related to rabbits then rodents, but different enough that they may be classified in a whole new order seperate from rodents and rabbits.

FYI, rabbits are rodents.
They look like fun, Standard. Let us know if you end up with a litter.

You'd be amazed how much crap comes out of one of those iguanas. It was a real picky snobby pain in the butt. The ferret was cool, but I didn't have enough room for it to give it proper care unless I let it run around my place. That thing would run all over the place from the highest lamp to under the couch. ooops too big.....

Good idea Tina, but I don't think my g/f would approve. I kinda bought them for her as a valentines day present, since she wanted me to get a 'fuzzy' pet. So far I've just been calling 'em the little b@stards, since they like to chew on my fingers when I'm trying to give them treats.
Right now they're about 4 inches long, body only. They're supposed to get to about 6 inches long, plus a 6 inch tail.

As for names... haven't thought of any yet.
You want my Frank? Iguanas are cool pets. They THRIVE on neglect
Give 'em a steady supply of greens, some water, a heat rock and the occasional bath, and they'll ignore you happily for YEARS. Frank is near 10 years old. Not terribly big. Kind of like a slow-moving lettuce.
