    What diet to feed baby B&W Tegus?

    Hello! I'm currently planning on getting an argentine tegu around late June early July. I was doing research and I could not find what I'm suppose to feed a baby tegu, should I feed them crickets only? Or can I feed him crickets and some ground turkey/ other meats like I hope? Thanks for helping!
