Iguana Grooming: Claws, Scratches

Sharp Claws: Iguanas are usually quite docile and enjoy handling. You, however, may not always enjoy the activity because of the scratches inflicted by sharp claws, powered by very strong limbs. An iguana's claws should be periodically dulled by an experienced veterinary or veterinary technician. A cautery instrument or high speed grinding tool is usually employed for this task.
