    ? Painting inside pvc enclosure, yes or no?

    I'm thinking a tegu's nails might be able to scratch spray paint off of pvc though... Try the clear coat as mentioned above, maybe that will help

    Male + Male together?

    I would not try this. It's too risky. Way too risky. Just letting them "meet" is risky enough. Someone's guaranteed to get hurt if you keep them together.

    Tegu randomly freaks out

    I would continue to be patient with her and keep working with her. Put her back when she's over it. The next day try it for a little bit longer. Rinse and repeat.

    Help! Bloated Tegu

    Have you tried another bath? Maybe a baseline vet check-up just to be sure he's in good shape?

    Overwhelmed with lighting

    Remember that a wooden and glass box can be quite good at insulating

    You can use plain flood lights for heat but not uvb. Wattage depends heavily on your layout. Best to get a thermometer and experiment with the bulbs you intend on using.

    Overwhelmed with lighting

    Yes I think we discussed in your other thread. Uvb lighting and a couple heat sources are recommended

    Live plants are gonna require some expensive lighting! I'd go with fake plants. Easier to clean. Less maintenance. Then you can focus on the tegus needs instead of worrying about plants.

    Enclosure and lighting

    a 48" tube should be enough! just hang it down a bit because they only have a penetrating range of like 18" i think

    Enclosure and lighting

    Depends entirely on the size of the enclosure. Do you have rough dimensions?

    Enclosure and lighting

    Imho a fluorescent uvb tube plus a ceramic heat emitter are the ideal heat + light arrangement but everyone has different opinions

    BOGA might be in trouble

    Not drinking when thirsty is thankfully one of the last symptoms before you die usually. Keep offering fresh water every so often.
