    Oh cool - yea I could tell it seemed like some normal thing. Very curious... glad I know!
  2. Curious - anyone else's tegu spit out shed-looking mouth crusties after sleeping?

    Okay this is a hard thing to describe - after a good sleep, my tegu will lick and lick to get rid of a small sliver of what looks like dried spit from some part of his mouth - usually two will come...

    Breeding question?

    I've never been brave enough to try breeding pets (and I don't have the space, or need for more than one pet, either). But I have the most gorgeous, tame, black-nosed Argentinian male, and he is been...

    Good Morning Tegu mouth

    Hey guys, I was guessing this is normal - in the same way when we humans wake up and have eye crusties in our eyes (or whatever you may call them), when my tegu wakes up in the morning, he often...

    Well it's been a crazy few weeks, but Sebby is okay. After waiting a week or so, I got the x-ray - incomprehensible. Not only did he have his entire Hydrometer in there, he also had a bit of bark,...

    Is there any way to try to get him to regurgitate before shelling out the $200+ for the ex-ray plus second doctor's visit? Is surgery really the only way to get something out of a Tegu?
    Also, does...

    I've been feeling around in his stomach, and if it is something I've feeling, it feels like it's in the upper part of his torso, maybe the stomach? It's not pointy, and I can't tell if it's just the...
  8. Trying to work though impaction/constipation

    Hey guys,
    It seems like these Tegus run into more problems than a 90s Mercedes.
    So, SebastiŠn had chewed up his temperature gauge beyond repair. Two weeks ago, I found his humidity gauge chewed up,...

    the pressure on the side of the mouth works when he's not already biting down. I'll try the water next time - I bet it would confuse enough for him to open up

    Tegu jaw emergency release??

    So today my tegu SebastiŠn once again got a hold of my work-out glove, which has a bit of rubber on it (which he loves to chew on for some reason). Anyways, he would NOT give up that glove, even when...

    So you gave your iguana a "pretend mate" and it relieved him of his mating stress? That's pretty funny!

    I was wondering what that stuff in his poo was. So I guess he's ready to mate. Is it mating season? Could that be a factor?
    His scrapes aren't too bad. It's more like he scuffed up the scales on the...

    So far at the very least I've screwed in the metal wiring and put a rubber strip around the entire sharp area. So at the very least, there's nothing on which he can injure himself while going nuts....
  14. Erratic behavior; scrapes from escape attempts

    Hi guys,
    I have a nearly two-years-old male tegu. The past week, there have been a couple instances when he's gone COMPLETELY NUTS for a while in his cage. I will hear him try to get out by...

    Cool - I got some Blaberus Discoid Roaches and a cup of Hornworms (they were out of the Dubias). Couldn't find them cheaper than Mulberry. I don't really know if this food is that sustainable - the...

    Hornworms, Silkworms, and Roaches

    Hello,
    My tegu is recovering from calcium deficiency. He is doing quite well and should expect a full recovery. The vet recommended some exotic, calcium-rich feeder bugs that I've never tried...

    Yes so I realized it was the perfect storm: I unknowingly stopped giving him calcium and his UVB bulb past its expiration date.

    I'm not totally sure what kind of tegu he is. I got him (or her, don't know yet) at the only reptile store around that still had a couple B&W tegus as late as August, and I didn't ask many...

    That's good to hear about the arm. Yes it seems healthy and returns after pinching. And he seems healthy besides the dragging.

    How much wrinkle in the arm?

    Hi, I'm a first time tegu owner. Had 2 bearded dragons before.
    One thing I notice that's different in my tegu, is that the arm is not as full and muscle-ey as in the dragon. I don't have any other...
