    I haven't traveled with mine, depending on how long I'm gone I'll either leave them alone, have someone check in on them or board them some where. Some shops and Vet hospitals board exotics. Actually I take that back, when I moved from Colorado to Nevada I drove and had Spaz with me in a bin with no problems. Like I mentioned in another thread just skip feeding for a few days before then the day of, offer a heavy meal like whole prey. Then your tegu will spend most of the time if not the whole trip sleeping and lounging around while it digests. If you use a heating blanket or pad check to see what the lowest temp is. Depending on the temps when you travel you may not even need it. Also if you haven't got one already a harness and leash will come in handy if she gets antsy in the bin.
