The Iguana Enclosure is a great addition to any home. They are very intelligent creatures and as such make a great pet for the right person. While most iguanas will do well in an enclosed environment, there are some that need more freedom. You can find that some iguanas will do better in cages that have bars and some even like to dig!
There are different kinds of the iguana enclosure that you can purchase. The cheaper kind of setup is made of wire and has no real frills except for a small hook to attach the bars. The more expensive types of this setup include things like mesh, rockers, perches, ladders and swings. This type of Iguana setup will cost you a little more money but it comes with all of the bells and whistles that come with your new pet.

The main thing you are going to need to consider is whether or not you have a greenhouse that meets your Iguana Enclosure requirements. You will need to make sure that your heater and cooling system are adequate for the size of the enclosure that you will build. This means that if you have a relatively large greenhouse, you may have to invest in a larger size of the Iguana Enclosure. The good news is that most pet stores carry the sizes of iguana enclosures that you will need.
The next thing that you will need to consider before buying an Iguana enclosure is the size of the “jar” that you will build. The size of your “jar” will be determined by the type of iguana that you are trying to raise and the size of your enclosure. If you are looking to house one small to medium sized iguana in a large enclosure, you will need to build a 20 gallon “jar”. If you are looking to raise a larger iguana in a smaller cage, a smaller “jar” would be required.
For those wanting to build their own Iguana Enclosure, there are many ways to go about it. One way is to build a small enough “jar” that will allow your iguana to move around freely inside. Then you would place the mesh on the outside of the “jar” to protect your iguana from “jar traps” or other things that might be found when searching for food. Also place some sort of soil inside the “jar”, this will help keep the soil fresh and prevent odors from permeating the entire area.
Another way to build an Iguana enclosure is to build what are called “PVC pipes”. These pipes are similar to the PVC pipes that you see used for home gyms. They come in various colors (usually green and yellow), but they are typically just straight plexiglass with some holes in them. These holes will be where the perches and toys (if you choose to use them) will be placed inside the enclosure. Placing a piece of pvc pipe in the proper configuration will give you a simple, inexpensive solution to an otherwise fairly complicated task.
In the end you will have purchased an inexpensive acrylic cage, a pvc pipe, some perches and maybe even a “roof”, if you chose to use one. The proper assembly of these items will make for a fairly simple iguana enclosure that can be easily constructed by one person, if you decide to build the cage yourself. If you are going to take on this project on your own, it is important to read all of the instructions before attempting to assemble the cage, and make certain that you fully understand any and all measurements that you may require. Once you understand the basics you should have no problem building your own.
