    Hey! This is a weird question, but as a new Tegu owner I need to ask- what should my Tegu’s poop look like? Are there any *cough* pictures?? I just want to be sure he’s healthy and I know stool is always a good thing to look at to determine wether he’s healthy or not.

    weighted blanket for tegu

    Hi I have a 2 year old tegu who weighs 13.5 pounds. She always crawls under my queen size mattress and it looks like it crushes her, but every time I move her out from under the mattress and sit on the bed so she can't crawl under it, she claws and scratches the side of the mattress trying to...

    What is this? Please help. (injury?)

    Just got this tegu as a rescue and noticed this thing on the scales on her head. I’m guessing Its either a burn scar, rubbed it raw against something somehow, or scale rot. Can someone please help? She seems healthy otherwise.

    Swollen eyelids

    Does anyone know what would cause swollen eyelids I'm a tegu? He has seen the vet twice and has been on antibiotic eyedrops, liquid antibiotics, and liquid anti inflammatory. But it has not helped. He is currently trying to brumate, but I can see that his eyelids are still swollen.

    Gunky Eyes

    I have an amazing 4 year old Colombian Tegu who had a mouth infection that was cleared out with antibiotics from our vet but since then he has been waking up with eye crustiest that he keeps scratching. We did a series of antibiotic eye drops and now the crusties look like when you wake up not...

    A simple thank you

    I just wanted to say thank you to you guys and gals for being awesome. I got my first tegu, a B&W, 18 months ago as a baby, he is now a giant monster, and I got my second a couple of months ago, a female blue, I'm hoping to breed. As I'm sure we all have I've run into a couple of issues with...
