    Caiman lizard only ate once since adoption.

    Biting at feet?

    My 3 year old tegu has formed a liking for biting our feet. Test biting, I believe. He isn’t aggressive when he does it… just wants to bite?

    Tegus skin is dry?

    I have a juvenile Argentine b&w tegu who has some cuts on his tail and feet, which also feel raspy. I've been giving him daily soakings and 2 mistings to help but so far nothing. Is this normal or does he need more humidity? I got him from a pet store and hes had them ever since I first got him.
