    Strange lump

    Strange lump

    Hi everyone, it’s been awhile! Tengri has been doing great as far as handling goes, however today I noticed a lump on their arm and was wondering if anyone knew what this might be.

    Thank you so much! I'll definitely try to keep the cats away. Those tips are super helpful as well, I was hesitant to start handling immediately because I didn't want to risk stressing them out or creating a mistrust so early, but your right this is the best time to do it while they are still...

    New tegu owner here with a few questions

    Hello! I recently got my first tegu and have a few questions about them. They are a baby(I wanna say they’re around 8-10 inches long, haven’t been able to handle them yet) gold tegu, don’t know the gender, has been in shed since I got them, and have been with me for about 2 weeks now. They’re in...
