I have a 2ft across plastic cover, like for a trash can, underwhich I put a few mice. Takes'em a while of prodding and attempting to flip it. I think it approximates a hunt.

Yesterday, I left a shipping box about 1ft x 1ft on the floor still full of the paper packing (no plastic peanuts...) and both my adult tegus were determined to get inside that box at the same time. There's no chance that even one of them could have fit, but I enjoyed their determination and ruckus. They're always rooting under things, including my knees if I'm sitting close by. Nudging to see if anything will move.

I'm going to try the plastic today. LET THE TEGU GAMES BEGIN

My croc shoes are a tegu magnet, racing over to poke snouts in the holes and yes, even try to flip my shoe with me in it.

Lol!! Croc crack. Without thinking much about it one day, I walked into the kitchen where the Tegus were basking away. I was wearing a pair of white canvas espadrilles (the ladies know what I'm talking about) and my female, Captain started biting at the toe of the shoe. The only thing she could have thought was that it was a nice egg coming her way.

Hounds gotta hunt!

Oscar's to big to hide under the black plastic lid It would look ridiculous, and he knows it. However, Jingles and Goldie use it some.

I like the hunting aspect of the plastic lid. When I got the Tegus, I had no idea they would be so expressive. Who would think you'd ever know what a lizard is thinking?

The value of paying close attention, huh?
