PostSubject: My Extreme Giant Tegu Hatchling (PIC HEAVY)   7/23/2011, 5:21 pm

Greetings to all my Bedlamites out there on the ScorpionForum. Sorry for the recent inactivity, the real world has been hell lately but nothing to concern yourself with. Unfortunately I did make some bad decisions and one of them was departing (reluctantly) with all of my 35+ emperors Crying or Very sad. Things have been better though and while on a bike ride from work I ran across what I believe to be a C. Gracilis. I'll post photos of that on another thread.

Now to stay on topic! Awhile back a user on here named leiurusSaleen820 posted a thread on his pets and showed 2 of his B&W tegus. I had never heard of these creatures before but I wanted one. So like any responsible future pet owner I researched them and BAM! Purchased one of my own. Here is my 3 Week old Extreme Giant Tegu I just received on the 20th. I believe 'him' to be a male. I've named him Kush (No correlation to C. Sativa.)

Nice B! I told you it would be alright. He looks to be a happy fellow. That liver looks gross though... Like milk with meat in.

I think I'm looking at an 8x4x4. I haven't gotten the supplies just yet but it will be a standard cage. Laminated wood on a 200$ budget. Thanks man I appreciate it. I've only had him a week and I love him like a son. So far so good and now I want all kinds of lizards. Gotta be smart and take the time though.
