    Feeding frequency

    If they're yearlings I would feed every two days and transition overtime to feeding every 3-4 days as they get older

    Is my Tegu too small?....

    General rule is by six ish months you can try checking but of course it depends on size too. If you have a real good trained eye (which I personally do not), you can tell the gender from birth

    Is my Tegu too small?....

    Not at all, their size vs age varies wildly. Although if you feed it well it will likely bulk up quickly

    Is my tegu over weight?

    Glad it worked! Hopefully that will help get her to eat a better balanced diet more easily :)

    Is my tegu over weight?

    My girl will also only eat certain fruits, some she turns her nose up at every time I offer it, some she only eats occasionally if she's in the mood, and some she seems to almost always enjoy, so it could also be a matter of still trying to find what she likes

    Early guberty?

    Yeah then it's likely guberty setting in! Don't get discouraged, it will end. Just try your best to be patient and if he's being aggressive, put him away, take his food away, and try again later. Don't reward any bad behavior, but understand he can't help it

    Early guberty?

    Likely guberty. You say he bites at your fingers, do you feed him with your hands? Or with tongs? If its mostly food aggression you could probably solve some of the aggression with re-thinking your feeding routine so he doesn't associate you interacting with him to mean food time

    Shedding issues

    I hope the super b complex helps, that's my go to for a serious shed problem. I would HEAVILY supplement it when my girl had issues, she was probably getting about 3 or more of the tablets a day roughly until she had a great shed. I would dip a mouse in raw egg and roll it in the stuff, she...

    Is my tegu over weight?

    The general guidelines I have seen are: for a baby (up to six ish months) feed everyday until they are full. For a juvenile (six months to a year) feed every two days roughly, i still feed until they are full. After that generally decrease, as an adult they will eat every 3-4 days. As they get...

    I’ll Draw your Tegu

    Yes it was perfect for the username :) I'm a graduate student hence the name, as well as a student who is always learning from my Goober girl. And the mantis is my lovely giant Asian Mona, who spent 5 days out of the week with me on my desk as I studied - so it is a perfect drawing! You nailed it

    I’ll Draw your Tegu

    Honestly I don't think no one wants you to draw their tegus, this forum has just felt dead for the past few weeks :confused: not really sure what happened but it feels like since 2021 started there's been barely any traffic on here

    Where are you allowed to have Tegus?

    An update- looks like the laws set to restrict ownership/sales/breeding of tegus in Florida just passed unanimously (https://www.tampabay.com/news/environment/2021/02/25/florida-restricting-sales-of-pythons-and-lizards-amid-fears-of-invasive-species/)

    Blue Tegus butt hangs out when pooping.

    Good thinking, and in my opinion, the reptilinks are not even as expensive as some people make them seem. Their young tegu blend is $80 and sold as a 6 month supply, which is about $13 a month to feed excellent nutritional food to your tegu. I do reptilinks and weekly whole prey for my girl, I...
