    Nose injury

    Hello, I'm new to keeping tegus but i have my girl for about year and a half now. We moved recently and i haven't let her free roam while there was a lot of going on, so she wasn't used to roaming our new flat. Today i let her out and she was very explorative, and when i put her back in her...

    Black hole on red tegus armpit, possible scale rot, need help

    When I first grimlock, my red tegu, it just looked like some stuck shed but every time he comes out of his hide it gets worse, I don’t know what it is and I have no clue how to treat it

    Tegu wound

    My tegu got a nick on top of his head. I rinsed and applied triple Antibiotic. Other than continually rinsing and reapplying over the next few days, is there anything else I could be doing. Thanks in advance

    Advice for an Injured Nose/Snout

    I just got a wild captured Tegu from Homestead Fla. She is beautiful, at to me. On the trip home and for the first week, she was really rubbing her nose a lot. It is now very reg and looks kind of bad to me. See pic. Is there anything I can do to try to help heal her snout? Thanks, Keith

    Injured tegu

    I have a b&w tegu about 4-5 months old. Had him out for his free roam time and turned my back for a second to thaw some pinkies and he pulled a laptop charger on himself. Now he’s limping on his front right foot. Being Sunday nothing is open. I don’t think it is broken. There is no deformation...
