I have been interested in Tegus for some time now, since I saw one several years ago. I recently moved to the Pheonix area of Arizona and was thinking about getting one. Biggest issue would be cage/enclosure and I wanted some opinions about an outdoor one with the weather here. It averages about 70-75 here during the winter and the hottest months of summer get to about 120ish. The colder days maybe drop to the 60s but mostly the 70-75 range. On rare occasions it might get below 60 like this past winter's cold snap that hit the entire U.S. it got down to about 30 degrees here which I believe might have been a record low. Also more of a factor I think is the humidity here which is very low being an arid desert. I know they need high humidity for shedding, would a humid hide and a misting of the substrate be enough? If not, would setting up misters to go off several times a day work? Also does altitude affect them at all? I know I could feel the difference moving from sea level in CA to 1000 feet above sea level here in the Pheonix area. I might have to just make an indoor cage but it seems like an outdoor one would be cheaper for me and bigger for them. So if anyone has tips/recommendations/opinions I would love to hear them.
