    I agree with tupinambis, my all american tegu has never showed any signs of slowing down since I got him at the end of august, and my girlfriend's blk/wht tegu really slowed down for about two weeks but now is as active as ever with an even bigger appetite than before.

    My tegu, Tazz has been down for almost three weeks now and he is sprawled out underneath his heat lamp. I live in southern California but don't know when he'll be active again.

    Do you mean early by age, or early by date?

    I had a hatchling tegu from Varnyard that was born at the end of August, arrived early September, then was hibernating by Thanksgiving and didn't wake up until April.

    Off topic, sorry. Tupinambis, I read on another thread that you were having a rough year. I hope things are better and you are gearing up for a pleasant holiday season.

    Tegs definitely slows down durning winter. This winter he's been more "involved" with sleeping than anything else, but temps are much lower because I've relocated. Last year he was a bit more active. I'm typically not around to see his day to day activity, but i find the remains! lol He hasn't eaten more than a mouse or two in the last month or so. I have seen him awake and laying under his lamp from time to time, though! About 2 weeks ago he managed to destroy my powersun (a rare occurance, but not totally unusual). He was more than likely attempting to climb and get closer and caught the cord.
