San Diego Zoo iguana gets exercise, learns target training

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - On Tuesday, Gus the ground iguana got his workout in at the San Diego Zoo. 

The reptile keeper spent training Gus, asking him to walk to a spot then rewarding him with a special treat. 

The training gave Gus important physical and mental stimulation. 

It is also important that he learns to move from one place to another that way keepers can target Gus to his warm cave on cold nights, or into a crate for a visit to the vet.
