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.

I've never really had any attitude problems...... Yes hes bit me 3 time but through my own stupidity, he was skittish and alot of work till he was around 18 month but no more than any other Gu..... We are in the UK by the way too
Just got my baby black and white tegu a few hours ago, he is so much better than I expected he is very social with me couldn’t be happier
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.
Hi everyone. I just got my B&W juvenile and he keeps running back and forth in the tank. Think he’s distressed?
