Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. My iguana simply refuses to drink alcohol. I am at a loss, I've tried all sorts of things but it's just not having any. Not like it's a hermer or anything, little barsteward nearly snacked on the end of my nose when my guard wasn't up just before Xmas. How do you get a reptile to man up and take a ( lizard equivalent of) a pint or two ? I want to take this thing out on a lead in the summertime to threaten small terriers......if I can't get it drinking before then it's just going to be a farce. Suggestions please.
  2. get him a missus - guaranteed by 10 mins he'll be dying for a drink to drown out the nagging :D

    My cat likes Guiness...

  4. is that a pic of it as your avatar?
  5. Try soaking some flies in absinthe and putting them in it's hoose. It's just that first hurdle, once he gets a taste for it there'll be no stopping him.

    It's definitely a 'he' isn't it? Maybe try a small Babycham, just in case it's a lady lizard.
  6. Good idea SmartAs, trouble is, they're largely vegetarian, although equipped with teeth sharp enough to chew through panda-sized bamboo ( okay, I exaggurate...not that much, though....). My main dilemma is, having taught dogs, cats, ducks and various other species the value of brewing, I'm at a loss when it comes to iguanas. Maybe I'll try The Nighttime Test. Chuck it back in the terarium ( bugger is lounging on the windowsill above the radiator right now) and swap the water bowl with one full of local rum. If next morning it's empty, either I'm on a winner or my neighbour has a key to the flat.
  7. I used to have this problem with a hamster. I found out that introducing its head to an ordinary everyday housebrick, followed by intensive grilling, it made an ideal accompient to cheesy beans and a fried egg.
    As an added bonus, the resulting leftover fur was died red, and made to look like an African Witch doctors red velvet Ju Ju pouch.
    I have had good luck ever since.
