    Wanted: Adult Male Red & Argentine

    Actually Reds don't only range in argentina - they also range into Paraguay. It's commonly accepted that the common name "argentine tegu" is T. merinae - so not sure the confusion It's pretty obvious what I'm looking for but since apparently I need to break it down 1.0 Tupinambis merinae 1.0...

    Mold Growing On Back of Tegu During Hibernation?

    I wouldnt bother with the bath. Try to wipe it off. I see no point in the bath, other than disturbing the animals more than need be. Remove them, clean it out use drier substrate. The end

    Austin, With proper planning and preparation you should be able to keep an argentine outdoors if not all year, most of the year in your city :)

    That's what I thought when I saw the pictures. Hopefully Bobby gets to have a look at this.

    Wild Tegu Pictures

    My coworker recently took a trip to Argentina. These pictures are not great, but still cool considering they are truly wild tegus. (he's said they moved too much to get a good picture but gave me what he had) They were taken at Iguazu National Park on the Argentina/Brazil Border.

    A few got loose!

    The worms dont eat substrate. They will eat what's in/on the substrate (leftover tegu food ie. turkey, or even tegu feces) People should use more common sense with regards to loose insects in a cage. there's a lot of "it will hurt my lizard, remove them all" and this might be feasible for...

    A few got loose!

    I had so many superworms escape in my old tegu cages that they turned to beetles and started breeding in there. It's really not a big problem at all.

    Red v. All American hibernation

    It is perfectly normal for a new tegu not to be seen for a week or more. This happens when a new animal is brought home no matter what time of year it is.

    Trio of babies

    I throw fruit in the enclosure with mine, but they ignore it still- it's mostly for the loose insects to eat. Since I have brought mine indoors because a month or two of very cool weather they have been eating like pigs. While they were outside they werent eating much and weren't growing much...
