So my 4 month old tegu has been showing all the signs of going down for hibernation over the winter but I worry because the breeder I got him from said that babies within their first year won’t go down for hibernation. I also know that he has been slowing down on food and sleeping a lot. I know that they are supposed to grow really fast and eat a lot as babies but he only has grown about an inch every month. I am worried that him going down for hibernation will stunt his growth. I want him to be a BIG boy as I am more than prepared for that and want that! Will him going down for hibernation cause a stunt in his growth? Will he not be as big? Is there a way I could possibly get him to not go down?
