    I am looking to obtain a tegu within the next month or so. Can they be kept in an enclosure like this or do they have to have the solid walls? I have a dedicated reptile room with temps that are kept at 85 and 60% humidity. I have no issues building the enclosure, I just happen to have one of these not being used.

    The enclosure wouldn't work for any reptiles let alone one that needs 70-120 temps, 60%+ humidity and is normally 3-4 feet long.

    You'll want an enclosure thats at least 8x4x4 for a tegu, and with preferably solid walls rather than wire/screen unless of course, you want bad sheds and substrate everywhere.

    Lots of research is needed before acquiring a tegu. Don't take this the wrong way, but just based on the fact that you thought that enclosure might work indicates you have a lot more of that to do. There is loads of information on this site regarding enclosure building so please look around.

    Did my research after this post. My custom enclosure is being built as I type this. Thanks though.

    I like its exposure to natural daylength.
