congratulations on your black & white argentine tegu. I got 2 of them back in March named Chompa & Tegoots-Rex. Initially, Tegoots-Rex settled in and started eating like a champion. Chompa took at least 2 months before she felt like home. Fast forward to December and Chompa is bigger than Tegoots-Rex lol.
Good luck, and a Happy Healthy New Year to you!
Help! Making an appointment with a vet ASAP, but want opinions here. For the last few days my red guy has been aggressive and he seems “wobbly”. He tries to look around and his head starts swaying like he’s “drunk”. Then he starts freaking out. He’s right at a year old.
Walter1, I was reading a old post where you had your Tegus in the back yard during the summer. you still doing that? I live south of Detroit and if I remember correctly you are in penn? so the weather should be similar. I wanted to give these guys some natural light and get them someplace while I rebuild and clean they regular enclosures
Nope - he/she is trying to figure out where she landed. They take awhile to settle, and it's diff for every Tegu. They will usually eat less, or not at all. As they start to feel secure, they temporarily become more territorial. These are smart animals with unique instincts for survival. It's actually pretty cool to watch how they respond and adapt.
