TRENTON, N.J. — The red-headed iguana is here to stay, and if you’re thinking that’s an issue, it might be time to rethink your expectations.

If you’ve ever seen one in a wild setting, you know they are ferocious predators.
Their bites can cause a lot of swelling, swelling of the muscles and joints, swelling and infection, swelling, and swelling.
There are a few things you can do to help minimize that risk.
The first is to be aware of what you’re dealing with.
Iguana venom is very volatile, and they can be easily caught by the skin.
You can wear protective clothing and wear a mask to protect yourself, as well.
Some people are even using snake repellent.
If you’re unsure of what’s best for you, you can find a licensed snake handler.
Then there’s the matter of how to deal with the reptile.
When you encounter an iguana, it’s best to get the animal out of the area.
In most cases, it will be more efficient to take it to a zoo or reptile rescue center, where it can be cared for.
But in some cases, if you get a hold of one, you might be able to bring it home to a pet store or park where it could be returned to its natural habitat.
Also, don’t let the venom get you.
It can be deadly if it gets into the blood stream.
So if you see one of these snakes bite you, immediately get medical attention and stay away from it.
