    It's been a while. But I have an update on Reptar

    Thank you! I love him so much! I think he's going through the yearling teenage phase. Very huffy but getting better. He loves free roaming in the living room during the day. I've been trying hand feeding, but he's getting a little bit nibbley when I don't have food. Hoping hand tame him a little...

    It's been a while. But I have an update on Reptar

    Hey! Reptar is doing great! He's been out of brumation for about a month. Eating great, still a little picky though. He still hates baths but loves to bask. He's finally growing! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Still not eating

    Hey guys! I haven't been on here in a while because I've been letting Reptar brumate and I haven't been worrying about his low appetite. But now it's almost April and since September he's hardly eaten a thing for me. His basking spot is around 120 surface temp. The ambient temp is in the high...

    About to bring home a new Tegu

    Im pretty sure i paid like 240 for my argentine black and white, but im pretty sure you could get a black and white at underground reptiles for under 200. ive seen most blues go for like right around 400. I would have gotten one if they hadnt sold out so quickly. I would definitely go for the...

    Male or female tegu?

    If no bumps, female or too young to tell. Though some breeders say they can tell from the hatch date, which blows my mind. But! Could be female

    Hibernation or something else?

    As long as his tail doesn't look crazy skinny, he should be okay. They naturally eat a lot less in the winter

    Hibernation or something else?

    Honestly sounds like hibernation. To me. I've had my tegu since September and he's eaten maybe 5 roaches. Part of a raw egg. 2 hornworms, a hand full of crickets and that's like it. He will sleep for a few days and then come out to bask. They're silly little critters if you ask me

    Time Needed for Tegus

    I bought my argentine at an expo for $240 but they sell at Undeground Reptiles for a lot less. I bought mine in September and shortly after he started hibernating. They're a lot more active during the summer, so that would be a good time to get one, and you have time off of school. I heard that...

    advice for harness training

    This works for me! It's small, not bulky and easy to get on and off. They sell them at petco

    Male or female tegu?

    Looks female? Do you feel little bumps on either side of the vent?

    Shedding

    His eyes are great. No wheezing. He still looks plump but I can tell his middle isn't as fat as when I got him. I'll measure him when I get him out though

    Shedding

    Hey guys. Some of you may know or remember, I got Reptar in September. I posted a lot about him not eating very much, and he still hasn't eaten much. He still poops every now and then when I put him in the bath tub but I'm a little bit concerned about him. He hasn't shed since I got him in...

    Which UVB fixture is preferable?

    I might just mount it under the scree top. He's just in a 40B gallon tank for now. He's right at the right distance

    Which UVB fixture is preferable?

    It's supposed to emit 50 (micro watts?) of uvb but I've heard that a screen top cancels out like 30%? Is that the case?

    Which UVB fixture is preferable?

    I got the 18 inch slimline in 'desert'

    Which UVB fixture is preferable?

    I bought the Zilla uvb lamp and hood. We'll see how it works. Looking for product reviews but I can't find many
