No ! this is a very irresponsible question the two animals are from completely different environments green iguanas are sun baskers and water dragons are tropical in nature not to mention iguanas are highly territorial and would if not immediately would eventually kill the water dragons. Please, for the sake of your animals health, research the individual environmental needs of your animals and act accordingly water dragons require a moving water source a bowl of water will not do!!! If in a bind for info. please feel free to contact me.
Rain is right on the $, never ever mix different species of reptiles.
what the hell is a water dragon!!!
Chinese water dragons are sometimes kept as pets, but require special accommodations. As arboreal creatures, they need large enclosures (55 gallons for a juvenile, larger for an adult), and a humidity of 70%, a daytime temperature of 75-85 degrees Fahrenheit, night time of 65-75 degrees Fahrenheit, and a basking temperature of 90-95 degrees Fahrenheit is ideal in order to simulate their natural rainforest environment. As with most diurnal reptiles, they require both UVA and UVB lighting in order to properly absorb calcium.
The green iguana (Iguana iguana) is a large, arboreal lizard from Central and South America. The green iguana is found over a large geographic area, from Mexico to southern Brazil and Paraguay, as well as on the Caribbean Islands
Many ignorant buyers are tempted by the price of young iguanas and apparent low cost of feeding, typically giving inappropriate vegetables and insufficent housing without sources of heat. In captivity Green Iguanas need to be in temperatures of 75 to 90 degrees and must have appropriate sources of UVB and UVA lighting. Without proper UVB lighting they can develop metabolic bone disease which can be fatal if not treated.
Rain has the right answer. Completely different species. Although they share similiar habitats, it is not advisable to keep them in the same enclosure.
While I was growing up my stepmom had both a water dragon and an iguana. They did not get along outside of their own cages. I couldn’t even imagine how much bloodshed there would be if you to keep them together.
