    I have a three week old tegu and I noticed that he sleeps alot. I got him 6 days ago. He wakes up around 9am then goes to sleep around 2-3pm. Is it odd for a baby to sleep this much? Maybe he is going into shed? He eats fine and he is pretty active when awake. Should I be worried?

    Babies sleep alot. Mine's about 6 months old and she sleeps a lot as well, but that's just because she expends so much energy running around her enclosure lol
