    Default The shirt trick

    Hello. I just purchased my first tegu last week, black and white columbian tegu. I saw this video about the shirt trick and it didnt really explain what it is for and why. Could someone tell me more about it? Thanks

    Hi larkinsreps. Welcome to our Tegu forum family and congrats on your new Tegu. What video did you see ? Did you see someone putting the shirt into the enclosure or my shirt trick ( the video below ) ?

    I came up with this shirt trick because I know Tegus feel safe when they are in a hiding spot ( like their hide in their enclosure ). If you put the Tegu in between the shirts you become the hiding spot. They also like the warmth of the body. It's best to do this trick when they first wake up and the body is still cold. The Tegu will also get used to you faster because he/she gets to smell your body. Please make sure not to put any thing on you like deodorant, perfume or cologne because it's toxic to the Tegu. The reason why I mentioned to put two shirts on is because the first shirt will protect you from the Tegus nails. The second one is for him/her to hide under. I recommend to put a belt on so the Tegu doesn't fall out of the shirts.
