    Coconut oil- BAD will burn skin

    Leezard, It's so nice to hear from you and grateful for your sharing your hard-earned experience. I've always been a moist sphagnum hide and fish oil booster. Good to know fruits are very helpful. Keepers might try ripe blueberries and strawberries. They're sweet. Nanners are high in potassium...

    Tegu tail spasmed like it was dropped

    Leave him alone for a while. It may have pinched a nerve only. Worst case scenario, it fractured and will drop.

    Night time temperature

    His hide in the 70s during active season and 60s during brumation is what to aim for. If too cool, he'll burrow closer to the heat.

    Bad pet shape

    Fresh water, a thermal gradient, basking at 110F, ambient in mid-80sF, a 70sF hide, UV, 12 hr day. A steady routine.with a worn shirt of yours in its hide. Unless underlying problems, will rally soon enough. Coat food in egg yolk as a starter. Soon, get her to a vet for a check-up. I second...

    Tegu still in hibernation- anything I can do?

    I don't know. However, she will require much larger housing.

    Tegu still in hibernation- anything I can do?

    She's stuck. She needs to be shocked into activity. Her enclosure needs to be where natural light comes through and your basking light mimics it. As Rant said, ja k up the basking temo but make sure temp grades into to low-mid 80s and at other end is a moist hide in the upper 70s for this time...

    Picky Baby Tegu and Purple Tongue?!

    Collectively, tegus are garbage disposals but individually they have varying food preferences. He'll benefit from a cooler (70s F) hide on other end of enclosure. Not sure about the tongue tip.

    Louie has an owie

    Not the first clue.

    Humidity levels in larger enclosure

    To what Rant said, I advocate for a moistened hide with sphagnum or even peat moss.

    What do I do?

    Proud to know you.

    Tegu is not growing/growing really slow

    Feed him as much as he'll take in 10 min. 110f bask, low 80s F ambient, and a 70s F hide. Cime winter cool him down.
