    The better question is.... are the Plants safe from the tegu and the answer is !!! Yay things to destroy. Plants are to Tegus, what buildings in Japan are to Godzilla.

    Basically, a secure snug hide of mid-70s F. Tame, the open wandering area is fine.

    I've actually been wondering the same thing . . . If anyone has a list of plants that are safe for the Tegu if he/she decides to eat some of it, but can also take a beating for when the Tegu tramples all over it.

    I know plants aren't necessary, but I feel it would add something interesting to the enclosure and might help stimulate the Tegu.
