    Hey guys I just recently bought a tegu which wasn't labeled. I believe it to be a blue tegu like a solid 90% sure. They told me it was a few months old but from what I'm gathering it looks to be a few weeks old. This is also my first tegu let alone my first reptile. I'm already in love with my little spaghetti. I've got a basking light in my room so when I let him wander he's got a hot spot. I'd like to believe it's a a happy healthy tegu. I say this because it's eating alot of food on a daily basis (ground Turkey currently) with a healthy sprinkle of calcium powder every other day on a few pieces. It's also pooped on my floor three out of the four days I've had it home. I spray it on a daily basis and bath it about once a week. Everyday I come home from work I feed it and take it out. I've been trying to feed it out of my palm (not with my hands out of my hands with a fork) as somone said this would help with getting him familiar with me. Any tips pointers or literally anything at all to help make my spaghetti the wettest noodle with no sauce would greatly appreciated. I wanna give this little monster the best life possible. Thank you so much and I'm looking forward to hearing some responses.

    Did you mean to blue twice so does that make him pure?
