    Pet Insurance for Reptiles?

    I'm using VPI (which is now owned by nationwide). Haven't had to use it yet but my rate is $84 / year. I'm about to file my first claim with them so I'll let you know how that goes... My only warning is to do it early as all pet insurance companies have a pretty bad reputation for considering...

    Talk to an expert, before you leap!!!

    Thanks! I really appreciate the detailed information - That is exactly what I was looking for. I'm extremely encouraged to hear that they can live so long with proper care. Out of curiosity do you know if the animals that reached that age hibernated or not?

    Current tegu owner here... If I can ask - Realistically how long lifespan wise are you seeing with captive tegus. I see some caresheets saying 8 and some saying up to 25. A lot of misinformation gets copy-pasted around and I was curious what you are seeing as average in your experience with...

    Finally found a secure harness that works for large Tegus

    So I have spent more than I care to admit on various leashes and harnesses for Loki. The first time I attempted to walk him he freaked out and nearly got free - the experience damn near gave me a phobia of taking him outside. Since then I've tried 8 or 9 other harnesses and none really seemed...

    Overweight Tegus, the hows, the risks and how to avoid it.

    This is great information - thank you. I have really been looking for some guides as the Vet has recently gotten after me for Loki's weight. I've drastically cut back his food intake but he hasn't lost weight yet because he has been half hibernating and his activity level has been extremely low...
