    Male + Male together?

    I heard the other day that you could keep male tegus together if you have a big enough enclosure is this true? I have a young timid male black/white and am wondering if I could introduce a red I know with other lizards this would be a terrible idea but are tegus different?

I wouldn't mind hearing what everyone's diet is for their tegus young or old and recommendations are fine as well I'd love to hear those as well.

    Why are some people against creating hybrid tegus?

    Why do some people seem so adamant about not crossing different types of tegus (or other animals for that fact?) Especially considering all of the beautiful kinds we've gotten like the purple and blues.

They said he was captive bred and "skittish", but when he shows up he's completely out of control ( attempted biting, flailing, running ) and his stomach was sunken in, he looked like he hadn't eaten in a while.
