81 newly hatched blue iguanas

81 newly hatched blue iguanas have made their way to our facility. This number doubles our “head-start” animal population plus three to 159. In the next week we will have A LOT of mouths to feed. The babies are born with some nutrients from the egg yolk to sustain them for a few weeks after they hatch, but that time will pass quickly. And we are still waiting on about 40 more eggs to hatch in the next two-three weeks. Team Blue (Summer Addition) was a huge help at the facility this past month, preparing for the new arrivals, and doing various, much needed maintenance on some cages and pens. Thanks guys!!!
