    Moved and now my Tegu is really aggressive

    So I got Fat Mike (named after the lead singer of NOFX) at like 13 inches on October tenth. He's now a little over two feet. We just recently moved across town and ever since he's been crazy aggressive. He does the snake tail thing and now lunges at my hands. Before he was a little skittish but...
