Ok guys, as many of you know I was in the process of writing a book about tegus. I have since decided to put all of the information here for everyone on this site.

I have scratched the idea of the book, this would have been something to gain money from, instead this information is now going to be given to everyone free here on this site. :)


There is a little bit of this posted in the General tegu Discussion Forum; <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.tegutalk.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=65">http://www.tegutalk.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=65</a><!-- m -->

Some of the topics are:
*Tegu Species ( Tupinambis ).
*General information.
*Choosing the right tegu.
*Tegus as Pets.
*Teiidae Family.
*Distribution.
*Size of tegus.

Take a look at this information and let me know if you like it so far. I will also be adding more to this. :)

DUH!!! I forgot about that!

Could you add detail about incubating??? More than just temps, humidity and mixture.

Hey Bobby,
I really like the content so far. I was hoping to get some knowledge on interactions/taming tegus. I thought we had a thread started on here but I can't seem to find it. Great job though!

Bobby i think all those Posts should be sticky'd. they should always be at the top of the forums so all the newbs will see it first thing. thanks you are a very selfless person and we can all see the amount you care about the tegu world.. :D :D :D

Bobby,

Ithink what you've done is a very generous thing. Thank you for sharing your years of experience and knowledge with us and making it so easily available. However, I would like to add that you should not preclude yourself from producing a book. There is no reason why you could not also benefit from your vast experience. Just a consideration.

Thanks again!!!!

I couldn't agree more. Even if you didn't sticky it, you give everyone all the info they need whenever they ask a question. I'm sure your book would sell.
