    Hi everyone, i have a little red tegu and i havent found poop for a few days, but a few urates probably 2 a day or so, he eats 6 crickets a day about 1-1.5 blueberries and a clump on ground turkey everyday wit calcium with no d3, i normally see him drink water everyday give or take a day, he basks regularly, is very active and eats out of his enclosure, he judt went through a successful shed although the end of his tail is still coming off but all seems well with him, he has basking temps of 110-120 and a cool side of about 82 and around 70 percnt humidity and gets baths everyother day and lotd of free roam, but i cant seem to find any poo, any help?

    I had the same issue. He could be hiding it. Mine goes under the smallest spots and behind and under plants and poops. Idk why but he does. That might be a possibility if it's hiding. And how big is your tegu

    Perhaps. They don't want to piop in their bed, and a standard enclosure might seem too confining.
