After having AA for 5 years I decided I wanted to expand on my reptiles... but rather than going the traditional way of choosing animals, I've chosen my area (Colombia/ northern south America) and I'm building a bigger cohabitation enclosure.....
and right about now I bet you're thinking NO NO NO not with a Tegu/Predator but I truly believe that my AA if introduced correctly will not attack anything (he's proved this theory with a few things already) and also I will be able to separate if needed or too much attention is showing.
I will be using my experience I've learnt with other animals and their safety is always priority.

Still along long way to go and a few more pennies to spend before I even think of any more animals.

What is an AA? Is this the name of your tegu??

Hi .... Yes AA is my Colombian Tegu.

And My Enclosure is complete now and can be viewed @ Thelongeandfriends both on Face book and Instagram

Also in the UK I found it seriously hard to just source Amazonian creatures and had to revert back to just Tropical species from similar environments

In my opinion mixing species is never a good idea, especially if those species would never cross paths in the wild. Each species has microorganisms that it has evolved with that he lives with and has grown used to, while other species might be made sick by those same microorganisms.

Thanks for your opinion although I don't agree with it and most of the species that I do own do cross paths in the wild and are from very broad habitat ranges that are equivalent spread across the world in correspondence with the equater which creates the same type of conditions and climates..... plus unless you are keeping all your reptiles in total sterile condition and they can never have any correspondence with you or the outside world you risk all the exact same risk of sickness via microorganisms.
