Teg's not keen on water !? apart from me putting him in it he's only been in once on his own !! He did the silly head under the water thing too .. lol. There's definitely a frog/newt in there somewhere ! lol

My guy will never, ever bathe in his tub. He only reluctantly even drinks from it. I feed very wet food, so maybe he doesn't need it. Other than having tegu B.O., he seems really happy and healthy. Maybe he is just French.

As soon as I clean out the water bowl for mine every night he climbs right in and soaks for a few, poops then goes back to basking lol. Makes for easy poop clean up but super annoying having to change his water twice in 10 minutes every night.
