    New to the Tegu parent family! Looking for some personal experience tips!

    Hey everyone! I just adopted my first Tegu and I'm relatively newer to the reptile family. I'm well versed in what is needed specifically for him however I have a question about sleep. So I'm assuming he is sleeping more (burrowing) because he needs to adjust to his new environment? I'd like to...

Then we got him home let him roam our 6,000 sq...
