    Rueben is my 4/5month old black and white Argentine Tegu. I got him last Friday and I’ve already had to move him to a larger enclosure. I’ll post photos (I’ll try to do chronologically but I am on mobile)
    I moved him into his new enclosure today and he has already dug up a bunch! Covering his basking rocks and creating what looks to be a mote. I don’t have many photos of the new enclosure except for the size comparison photo and his close up face photo.
    More photos to come!

    I don't think so, but could be. I didn't ask the guy many questions. I still have his contact if I have any really important questions about him.

    What a cutie! They do love their digging and hiding. Congratulations - you'll be surprised at the bonding that will happen. Couldn't tell what you were feeding, but don't forget the thawed out pinkies! Hard for them to resist.
