    My 4 month old red tegu will only eat Dubias and super worms when will she start eating ground turkey, chicken hearts and pinky or hopper mice?

    She should be eating them now my baby ate pinks and ground turkey at a week old. Try adding some fish scent to it

    Perhaps, it's the lack of movement that's the turn-off. Shake from end of long forceps.

    Alpha wouldn't touch anything but insects at that age I'm sure once your gu is a bit bigger and older it will eat meat just keep trying.
