    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.
