    Shredding and attitude

    The little turd charged and jumped and Nipped my hand the day before yesterday while I was getting him out to eat so he didn’t get to eat that day because he was in time out and then burrowed. So when I got him out yesterday to eat he ate and then cuddled with me for about 2 1/2 hours and would...

    Shredding and attitude

    Does anyone else’s mini Dino get grumpy when they shed? My 5-6 month old is on his 4th or 5th shed and I have noticed he gets kinda temperamental even he’s shedding.

    To much time?

    Is it possible to spend “to much” time with your baby tegu? Lol. Or is that even a question mine is about 5 months old. I’ve had him since March 12th and I hold him every day for about an hour.

    Freaking out

    Oh my gosh! He’s like my best friend now! Lol we have developed a bond already! Atleast I think lol there is no hesitation at all getting him out of his tank or anything! He loves to crawl around my bed and then find a warm place against my body and fall asleep, that is if he’s not on my neck...

    Freaking out

    My only problem is that our routine is as soon as I take him out I feed him and then we hang out together either he’s in my shirt or we just lay on my bed as he crawls around. Should I change my routine at all? Should I not be doing it that way?

    Could he just be pushing limits? Is he to young?

    Ok so from my last post couple days ago I said my little guy had jumped up and bit me :( but then I got it under control basically. That was 2 days ago. (Read my last post to know everything) Well yesterday was another normal day. He got on my hand as usual. BUT today was the same as the other...

    Freaking out

    I’m not sure on EXACT age but I know he is a 2020 hatchling and I have had him a month today. It took me about 2 weeks to get him to crawl onto my hand all by himself ( we have an open top tank. I know it’s not ideal but it was a free 210 gallon tank) anyways, it was the EXACT same routine as...

    Freaking out

    So I’m not sure what’s going on but I came home and got Diesels food ready then went to get him from his tank just like every other day and he jumped up at my hand and bit me so I let him settle a little and then left him alone for a couple minutes and he started running around his tank...

    Thank you very much :) I love what I do but it’s still a bit stressful at times like these. But like it was said earlier going home and hanging out with my mini Dino is helpful! :)
