    Tegu butt scooting excessively

    So my tegu Gilbert has been pacing around my room for the last little bit scooting his butt on the ground. He usually does this immediately after pooping, but he hadn't passed anything when I first noticed this behavior. I was immediately worried about impaction/constipation as I gave him cut up...

    I can't get my Columbian to eat anything except protein

    Hey folks, I'm very new to the Tegu World and I'm a little concerned about my juvenile. I received her as a rescue about a month ago, and from her size I'm guessing she's about 4 months old. She eats and sheds well, and is very docile considering how young she is. The only problem is that she...

    I recently bought a baby Argentine red tegu at the Tinley Park Narbc reptile expo. I have another tegu but raised her from a yearling, so I don't quite understand the intricacies of hatchlings quite yet. I have my baby setup in a 75 gallon acrylic tank for growing.
