Our 5 months old baby Beta The Superman (rock iguana hybrid) doesn’t stop to amaze me. Clearly he is also Einstein. His latest “invention” is to jump on my hand when I extend it and offer it to him. I have made a video and you can see that he has been doing this for many times in a row.
It seemed like he figured out that if he jumps on my hand he will be taken out of the cage and carried around the house. Since Beta has no fear of humans or human hands he uses the opportunity to explore the surroundings by being carried around. And he really loves it too, he can sit on me hours at a time if I let him.
Cyclura is very intelligent reptile and as you can see even juveniles can learn “tricks” in an instant. Enjoy the video.
