    Any idea what's going on? Recently I've been feeding my Black&White Colombian Tegu Ground turkey with Calcium and D3 powder kneaded in about 2 weeks ago then he started to refuse his food for days straight so I got chicken gizzards and hearts, now's he refusing that and won't eat it's been a problem for a few days now are there any other staple food suggestions?

    You can’t feed them just ground turkey , they seldom come across that in the wild , that should be more like a treat. Whole prey is the best and most realistic- crickets, spotted roaches, horn worms, meal worms, a pinky every once in a while

    Although they don't brumate ..... I am finding that they still vastly slow down for winter

    Alphas appetite has probably halved
