Iguana iguana
The effects of dietary vitamin D3 and exposure to ultraviolet light on growth of juvenile green iguanas (Iguana iguana) was investigated. Thirty-two iguanas (2-3 weeks old) were randomly assigned to one of four groups corresponding to four experimental testing protocols. The findings give a current perspective on the best vitamin D3 acquisition method by green iguanas in a husbandry situation.
