    Hello, guys!
    My cat has captured this baby yesterday. Luckily it was unharmed. I released it from her terrible jaws and took him someplace else, where I think it be ok.

    Hi Camila-

    Kind intentions on your part. If you live in Florida, they should not be released as they are exotic and have no real predators of their own and they are very hungry mid-level carnivores. Like releasing a T. rex in a kindergarten.

    Yes, I live in Florianopolis - Brazil. We have a whole family of tegus living in and around our place. If you check other stories of mine you'll see that.
    Brazilians are generally afraid of lizards, we don't breed them or raise them. As I said in my first thread, I had to research about how to deal with these creatures, after starting to feed them, now they come to my door every afternoon, the whole family.
