Mexi, the northeastern spinytail iguana

Mexi is an adult female Ctenosaurus acanthura, a northeastern spinytail iguana from Mexico. She is wild-caught and not tame but not vicious, just shy and retiring. She eats mostly greens but occasionally will eat superworms and dubia roaches. She is about 2 1/2 feet long.
