    Tegu Sexing Help

    The breeder told us we had a girl when we got our tegu Bluey as a hatchling, but I realize it’s not an exact science at that age. Now that Bluey is a year and a half, I was trying to see if I could spot the bbs everyone’s always talking about in these threads, and I am struggling! Maybe that...

    Rueben on cork

    It's been a while since I have been on here but we are still doing well! Rueben has calmed down enough to were I can take him out on a daily basis. I have been giving him steam baths and trying to mix his food with water to help hydrate him. I just picked him up this new cork tunnel to try out!

    Hi everyone!

    I just got my very first Black and White Argentinian Tegu about 6 weeks ago. I call it Bubba and it is about 12 weeks old now. What are some good suggestions for bonding with it? Also he seems to want to only eat crickets and on occasions chicken. Does that seem normal? Last but not least, well...

    Argentine or Colombian

    Just got this Tegu two days ago from an individual seller. Now I’m wondering if it’s not an Argentine, but in fact a Colombian. It does have the two scales between the nostril and eyes on both sides, as well as a line down both sides of the back. The skin also feels beaded, which I heard is an...

    Eating Enough?

    I've had my Tegu for a little over 2 weeks now. He eats occasionally but I'm worried he isn't eating enough. I socialize him when I can. He isn't aggressive or anything but our schedules don't always match up and when that happens I leave some food out for him to munch on but he doesn't seem to...

    Our Schedules aren't Lining up

    Hey everyone, so, I work at night and generally pass out right around the time my tegu wakes up. Tabuccca used to be up twice a day when we first got her, so my husband would see her in the morning and then I would see her in the afternoon, however, since she turned 3, she's only been up in the...
