Hey there!
New Gu owner here and of course I know how big tegus get, but I was wondering more about avg milestones w age? I got a BW Argentine male in August. He’s 3 months old today and 26.5” long from nose to tail. He has grown an insane amount since August. I was just wondering if he is bigger than avg for 3 months old?

also he is still a bit skittish at times. He lets me reach in and pet him and crawls out in my arm sometimes(mostly when he wants treats or food) and sleeps on my lap, but still hides sometimes. Is that pretty normal until he gets a bit bigger or should I handle him more?
