This is Hope, my 4 month old red tegu.

This is Hope, my 4 month old red tegu.

It’s amazing what a difference in personality between my tegu and my blue tongue skinks. The tegu is so active, inquisitive, and intelligent. I’m trying hard to tame her by putting my hand in her tank and allowing her to flick her tongue at my fingers, sometimes giving me a little nip, and finally climbing over my hand. What an adventure. Good luck with your new baby.
With Norbert (my red tegu) I sat in the tub (clothed) and just let him walk on and about me. Since there wasn't anywhere crazy for him to run off to he just stayed and climbed over and under my knees. Now while he doesn't like to be picked up, once you set him down in your lap or on your chest he just snuggles in.
