Okk so my tegu has this really funny behavior..whenever I scratch the the base of his tail he lifts it straight up..but at the same time he closes his eyes and flicks his tail side to side almost like telling me scratch here then here. It relaxes him he ends up falling asleep and sometimes he paws at me to scratch his tail. DOES ANYONE ELSE'S TEGU DO THIS? OR IS MINE JUST SPECIAL..

Scratching the base of the tail is sexual stimulation. That’s why their butts lift up.

I will believe this as my female 20 month old red tegu starts 'mini huffing"= short bursts- until I start rubbing her head and eyes and side of her mouth. When I stop rubbing she starts her little huffs!!I am glad yours also can communicate these things. Its quite heartwarming!!
