    Buddy performing an old trick. I posted a video when he was younger that I taught him how to go home on command because people didn't believe me. He can still do it. He is such a smart boy! Love this guy!

    Just finished reading Buddy's entire thread. You've done an amazing job, he seems like he's a gentle giant and definitely sweet. I'm new to owning a Tegu, I'm off to a good start just have to put the work and time in. Hopefully I can build the incredible relationship you and Buddy have with my Tegu Arnold. Thank you for sharing your journey.

    It's been awhile since I updated on Buddy. He's been doing well. He had kind of a lazy Chicago summer. Slept more than usual. My bearded dragon did too so I know it wasn't anything health wise. Maybe the barometric pressure was just off this summer.my only concern with him is his difficulty shedding on the lower portion of his tail. No matter what I do it just doesn't shed well. His white bands have a yellowish color. He gets soaks when he's out and his cage humidity is always 70-80%. He sheds great everywhere else on his body. Any advice on that would be appreciated.

    With that being said, it was quite a treat to spend time with my friend. He is so good with me. Complete baby. Never shows any aggression whatsoever. Here's some new videos and pictures.

    Enjoyed viewing this thread. Every Tegu should receive the quality of care and attention you give to Buddy. He is a wonderful Tegu "Ambassador" thanks to your efforts.

    Haven't been here for awhile. Life got very busy, but Buddy is doing awesome. I still have him and he is still as tame as a puppy. Some recent vids.
