    Tegu is a wonderful and great pet but unpredictable life Tegu is the first to go. Sometimes people make excuses to justify getting rid of their Tegu. Please don’t buy if you cannot commit regardless of life change. If your kid bought Tegu., you also own it. Goodluck

    I agree, to many times people just don't think long term and, wind up rehoming (reptiles especially it seems) because they get in the way of college or, other life changes. Well, I for one am a believer that once you buy it, it is your responsibility to see it through no matter what. These animals depend on you for their every need and, they also bond with you.

    Gor, I'm with ypur sentiment, but sometimes animals in our care are no longer served well with us for reasons BEYOND us. If so, then we ought to do our best to do right by them. So, don't get a tegu if you're not serious. If you're serious and issues beyond you arise, do your best to do right by a fellow living creature. My thoughts.
