yea i had proper UVB and heat lighting. the diet I gave her wasn't exactly as proper as the books will all tell you, but it was all still healthy for an iguana. im honestly not sure how she contracted MBD towards the end there because it was literally 3 days before she died that I noticed signs of her not wanting to eat, and the other obvious signs of MBD. I had a friend who had an iguana show signs of MBD for nearly 2 years before it died (he honestly just did not take care of his )
