    Help with a Golden Tegu

    Thank you! They get along with each other very well. I'm kind of surprised considering they are both male. The tegu is more dominant. He will just climb over the Savannah if he wants to steal a choice basking spot.lol

    Tegus and crowds

    My black and white will come out and greet visitors on occasion. He likes to flick his tounge all over their shoes. Then he will stick his head up their pant leg and sniff them. Then he leaves to go do tegu things. He is a free roam ,but has a big enclosure. 8x4x6

    Maybe you guys just smell good to him. He will be approaching tegu puberty or puberty as its known in tegu o.j owner circles. My Savannah monitor does something like that to me. He likes to lie on my chest and deep sniff me. Lol

    What is Normal Baby Tegu Shedding?

    My tegu is 4 feet long. He has a huge enclosure but I keep the door open all the time and he just comes and goes at will. However, he does spend most of his time basking in the enclosure

    What is Normal Baby Tegu Shedding?

    As long as the crickets aren't any longer than the space between her eyes. Also, dubia roaches are better . They dont smell like crickets do and they have more nutrition. Also, you can feed her pinky mice as well. And ground Turkey.
