    Arcadia and Tegus

    Hey folks, in a couple of months I'll be bringing home a baby tegu, and I was wondering what your experiences with Arcadia for heating and uvb have been. I've heard good things about Arcadia's 12% uvb bulbs, I think they're pretty solid but I'm mostly curious about basking heat sources. Has...

    How to get my tegu to stop pooping all over the floor

    Does anyone have any ideas on how to get my tegu to stop pooping all over the floor. She likes being out and if she can’t get out she will try and rip the tent to get out. But every time she is out all she does is poop. And I don’t know how to get her to stop.
