    That was a bold thief! Are you sure it was stolen, and not just a wiley escape?

    Yes positive there was no way for him to escape and would of been in the reptile room and the metal screens need to be pulled out of slots removed tab to even pull them out and move the wooden boards on top. I forgot to put tab or person left it out tho and I would of noticed all the wood and screen knocked over. It's sad

    Ya since then though I made my reptile room super secure since it's not attached to the house! I live on a 12 acre property and it's like the garage and the garage has like a studio apartment size building attached to it that's my tegu room. I added a black out steel security door and black out steel security bars inside and outside windows plus building is solid concrete walls. And added cameras and sensor lights

    Hopefully if their comes back they get a buck shot to the butt!! Just sucks my high white male was meant to be paired with my red female which they left now I have to get another red male or just make blue ice and red hybrids which probably would look stunning since blue ice or ice tegus have red already in them.

    Geese are great!! Best watch dogs ever. They're also aggressive toward people after they've grown up and become territorial.

    I love geese. You could give your Tegus their eggs...free food.

    Good job - safer already. Hopefully the bandits will give up with your new adjustments.

    Or maybe your red female might just give one of them a big bite.
