    Default Toki's first outside adventure

    It finally got warm enough outside yesterday for Toki to go for a walk on his leash. She was sleeping inside, so a nice basking nap was called for before her little romp. I think he had a really good time! I wonder if I should ground her though because this morning I took her out of her bath and she was forced to sit on the counter for a few minutes because the hubby asked me to look up something for him online. I had my hand in front of her so she wouldn't go anywhere and she starting digging at my fingers. When I ignored her she gently put her mouth on them. I looked at her then but did not put her down to roam or back in her cage. I don't think she was pleased, so this time she bit my pinky finger, not hard enough to draw blood, but she didn't let go until I told her no and gave her a soft tap on the top of her head. Then I put her back into her viv and she has been in time out for about an hour. LOL I wonder if her little outside romp got her all feisty?

    Thats the first time I've seen her, and she's real pretty. I've heard of some of the other members Tegus flipping out when they first went outside
    ...I don't know why they do that though.

    Nice tegu! I wish I could take my beardie outside when he gets bigger, but I'm always scared that the two hawks that always hang around my yard will swoop down on him. Even if I had him on a leash, I'd still be a bit worried.

    There are wire cages that you can buy for them to have fun outside without a leash. But if you do that you need to put in a hide for them so if it gets too hot they can cool off.

    LOL. The story and the video crackes me up. I love it but I am sorry that you got bit. She was probably hungry. They get a bit wild outside because they can smell the wild animals and hear the birds and other noises they are not familiar with. Good thing she didn't charge at you and try to bite you when she was walking backwards. She is so beautiful . Thank you for the video.

    That could work, but something like a birdcage would be better. For your viewing enjoyment here is Scorch. She was outside the same time as Toki yesterday, but decided to be a lazy fart. She is a year and a half old, 20" and weighs almost 2 lbs.

    She was fine yesterday after going outside. She bit me this morning I think because I was ignoring her and she wanted off the counter. She did eat afterwards, so maybe she was grouchy and wanted to eat.

    I've seen some of the wire cages you guys are talking about. The problem I've heard of with them is that other animals tear them open pretty easily
