    How is my enclosure

    Hello everyone- I’m new to the site and anxiously awaiting the arrival of my first tegu in about a week. I have had the 8x4x4 enclosure built and running for about a month to get the bio active CUC numbers up and to make sure I have heat and humidity dialed in. What do you all think?

    Beautiful blue boy *update*

    Hi tegutalk. I've been a long time lurker to find out about a blue tegu that I've been a sitter for and involved with since he was a hatchling. Sadly his owner passed away and I am the next closest human the tegu knows/trusts and am most likely going to adopt him. He is almost 2 years old and...

    Draco’s New Digs!

    Finished the new enclosure, and got Draco moved in this past weekend. He seems to be loving it! In the end, I made a critical error in the design of the faux rock walls that caused them to crack all to hell and back, so they didn’t get used. I think it worked out better without them though...

    UV Lighting Questions for an Animal Plastics T100, Bioactive

    Hi, all! I'm trying to work out the lighting for this cage, given its size and the fact that I need UV lighting not just for the tegu, but for live plants, as well. (Most live plants will be growing from planters set into the background, where my boy can't dig them up.) Specs on the cage here...

    Live Fish for enrichment?

    I have a small pool for Kamata to dip in if he wants to, but I was wondering if any of you guys have ever installed a small pond in one of your enclosures? I was thinking about adding a waterfall-esque filter and some small fish for him to hunt. What do you guys think? And if it’s not an awful...

    Anyone use buffalo beetles in Dubia colony or in tegu setup

    I’ll be getting 200 buffalo beetles anyday now in the mail. They are advertised as a great cleanup crew and I was going to add them to my Dubia colony. I just don’t want to open Pandora’s box as I hear they breed like crazy and end up regretting it. Does anyone have any experience with them or...
