Hatchling

I just got my first baby iguana last week and need some advice on feeding.

I'm feeding him what my adult iggy used to like; collards, misc mix, red peppers, mangoes, strawberries, etc, but I'm not sure he actually eats the food. I am planning on adding more variety of veggies until I figure out what he likes. He did lick the food on few occasions. Walks all over it daily. But didn't see him eating though.

For others who had baby iguanas, how did you initally go about feeding them? More variety or less? blending foods or just chopping? Do they eat really small quantities? Anyone tried feeding a live culture yogurt?

My first iguana was few years old so I had no problem with his appetite at first. Managed to get him off lettuce and zuchinni too.

Thanks!
