Can my green iguana eat the flower of a Hibiscus plant?

Hibiscus is a safe "treat" to give your iguana ...

Both flowers and leaves are okay to feed. Use caution and do not use plants that may have been treated with any pesticides or other chemicals.

Can my green iguana eat the flower of a Hibiscus plant?
Yep, just make sure that it hasn't had any pesticides or fertilizers sprayed on it. Best if it's something from your own yard and you know 100% that it's basically organically grown than to be picking from someone else's yard...
Reply:it CAN eat whatever you feed it, the real question is SHOULD your green iguana eat the flower of a Hibiscus plant...
Reply:yes!! that's actually what they like in the wild... home grown and washed well is how it should be prepared. mine reallly loves kale for some reason, oh well its good food either way!
Reply:Yes, according to the care book they can have Hibiscus.
