    Hello all, I am 15 years old and currently have 1 reptile: a clown agama. I've had my clown agama for 4 years now and I am looking to expand my reptile "collection". I saw a columbian tegu at a reptile expo this winter and I fell in love with it (I did not buy it on the spot because I wasn't ready to suddenly adopt such an animal). I have done lots and lots of research and I continue to do some every night about this animal and its needs. I am planning on making a 6' wide, 3' deep and 2' high enclosure. I am predicting to feed him a big variety of meats and fruits but mostly cat food and frozen mice (obviously the proper size). Does anybody have any tips/recommendations? Anything will help thank you!

    Wise not to pounce. Check out rhe many threads here as many members keep teguixin. Fruits and frozen mice should do it. Some organ meat and high quality dog food.

    Golds are fun animals. I recommend them if you've got the time to devote to them.
