I am 55 and my rhino MAY out live me , if i do my part and take good care of him . I wish i was younger or had got him earlier . But being retired i have plenty of time to take care of him . I am in his room at least 3 hours or more a day. I have him in one of the extra rooms in out basement , in that room is his cage , a table with Moringa trees growing on it ,and a recliner to sit in . Not sure how long his 3'x8' cage will last him . Not sure if i will add on to it , or make a new one . ?? I order a compact florescent bulb and another MVB from MegaRay a hour ago . still want to get a solar meter soon .

NO INSULT at all !!:D

I saw Rhino Iguana in a reptile store in Chico Calif 15 years ago +/- while on a truck route . I new where all the Fly shops and Reptile shops were in just about any town in N Calif . So that where i would take my lunch breaks .:D Just didn't have the time or space until now . I was working 60 hour weeks and trying to play dad , husband and doing church stuff . I wanted a Rhino iguana after seeing my first one in Chico .
