    Lighting questions

    I would, but it's the force at which he hits them with that's destroying them. He's not breaking the actual bulb, just the filament. He knocks the lights into each other, so I'm going to have to come up with a more permanent less accessible light source. I'm thinking uvb uva strip mounts on the...

    this is why we cant have nice things.

    Same with Jekyll, he lives up to his name. It's amazing how strong they are. I have to get a hide box, and a single large basking rock, if anyone has suggestions on a rock or place to get one, that would be great. I am using a 12x12 paver which is to small, and it's on smaller pavers to bring it...

    Lighting questions

    Okay, so I've finally moved Jekyll out of his old enclosure which was relatively small compared to him, into the boamaster 6x3x4 or something along those lines. He has his own room so I let him roam often,but my problem is this. He likes to jump, and before the basking spot wasn't getting hot...

    So, I was shutting the cage door, and yes,I did it. :( . I caught Jekyll's foot in the door,I felt so horrible, it was so quick,I stopped right away. I'm hoping no damage was done, but there is only one way to be sure. He held it in the air for a few seconds and I gently started rubbing his...

    buried food

    So my tegu ate a mouse he buried, and I thought I got everything out of his cage. So my question is how worried should I be. That was his first time he's done that, so I assumed he ate it. I know it has bacteria in it, and our stomachs have mechanisms to break down these things, as do theirs. Am...

    Update on Jekyll

    Once I move I'm going to get a couple of humidifiers for his cage,but for the most part his cage is sealed save for some vent fans on it. He is going to love his new cage.

    This years varnyard stock.

    Okay,normally I don't respond to these, but here is a start. One, just give him a call and leave a message. Email isn't a sure fire thing, when I have talked to him he's been great, and his tegus speak for themselves. Also before you count him out, just do this. The accident with Florida adding...

    Update on Jekyll

    Wish I could say yes,but it is. This cage is for my beardie from boamaster. The other one is setup for a tegu,I'd say get the humidifier system, but mine crapped out after four months. So I spray the cage down very hour or so.

    high white giant (storm)*pics added*

    He's in a new shed too lol. They grow so fast. He's averaging three XL mice a day. I am very glad he is so gentle with me haha, the classic tegu crunch tells me without looking that use to be a skull. He isn't food aggressive to where I'd worry. He has very good aim lol. The one time he was...

    sleepy time it is.

    Mine too,but I'm hoping he will get up again to go to the bathroom as he ate a few days ago. He won't refuse food though, but goes back down, and has been for about 4 days now.
