    So I want to get a blue tegu preferably a female since they are smaller than the males but what’s the smallest size enclosure I could keep them in that they can permanently live in? I would add a climbing ramp to a second level where I would have a basting light. I would rather have it bigger in height than length to be honest but would that be okay for this type of monitor??

    Dear Jess,

    Tegus only seem like monitors. They are only distantly related to them. Many aspects of their biology are very different. Tegus might climb but are not arboreal. Aum for floor space, not height as for many spo. of monitors.
