    How easy is it for my tegu to actually get impacted? One of my biggest concerns

    The chances can be extremely high or low depending on what substrate you use, do you feed in the cage or out, is there substrate present at feeding, or what food you are feeding. The good thing is you are in control of all these factors and if you’re worried it will get impacted then you should feed it somewhere without a thicker substrate. A food option such as turkey placed on cypress mulch would have a significant more chance of impacting your tegu compared to ground tukey in a feeding bin with no substrate. so basically its all relative to how you go about feeding, atleast thats how I see it
