    Hello guys. My baby tegu has been really sleepy for the past 3 weeks, he can go to sleep like 4 days straight, the problem is, that he is a baby, and he is not eating those 4 days while he is sleeping, so I’m asking this: Is it okay to wake up my tegu in this type of situations?

    Also, does his body show good form- not skinny in thighs, hips, tail?

    He was out today so I took a picture of him, he is really active, he likes to make alot of burrows on the dirt and take a splash in his tub.

    Yes, you’ve given him time to settle in. Waking him up should be no problem—especially if he eats and drinks when you do.
