I just got a Red Tegu over the weekend - I am pretty sure i'm in love with him. He's awesome.
I posted before that he jumped out of my hand and he was dragging his back legs after the fall for like 30 minutes, then he regained full mobility (I think he was in shock). But now he seems as good and as curious as new!
He only ate 1 tiny piece of chicken about the size of a dime (and out of my hand, which was great) since i got him on Sunday, but I am assuming that might be because he is getting acclimated to a new environment so that's why food isn't his #1 priority. I left 8 small mealworms in his bowl, when i get back from work I am hoping a few will be gone.
Any other ideas to stimulate better eating early on?
