    So recently, every time I put Reptar in the bath, he freaks out and tries to jump out until I take him out. I usually wait until he calms down before I take him out because I don't want to reward him for freaking out. Has the happened to anyone else?

    My tegus are also less than thrilled with bath time. I suspect that the biggest problem is that they are out of their comfort zone. I get less anxiety when I transfer them in their feeding (poopling) tote.

    I just see all of these Gus that relax and fall asleep in the bath and mine hates it.

    Can you build some sort of platform with a pool of water or an island to go in the bath so Reptar can entre and enjoy the water at his leisure??
