Tegu's are Omnivorous and they should not be eating that many rodents in a day,
What you want to do to save on money and food consumption so I suggest
you start making a mixture for your tegus containing the objects they eat during the week
meat/veggies/fruits/ I like to throw in insects. Minch it all up, roll it up into balls and throw them into the freezer
you can add calicum to your tegus meal and other multivitams to make up for the bones they are not recieving
from the rodents be sure be sure to add the cal/vits after the food have defrosted. Because you're not feeding you're
Tegus so many rodents as they are not snakes - you now have more rodents for those of your family who should be
mainly consuming them the snakes..

And the beardies do not need so many pinkies. All that protein can be hard on the kidneys...extra fat hard on the liver in the long run.
