How to get our new Tegu to adjust


New Member
We just got our Tegu today and were wondering about how long we should leave her alone and do her thing? She seemed to be adjusted well and when we got her she was super cuddly and loved being petted. We tried taking her out because she looked like she was hunting and we tried feeding her, but when we picked her up out of her cage, she freaked out and ran away every time we tried to pick her up. We tried running her in our hands and petting her, but she was persistent and we didn’t want her to drop her tail so we put her back and put the food in her enclosure instead. I’m not sure if this was the right thing to do. I don’t want to stress her out.
