    I have a colombian Tegu, and he hides alot. he’s out from about 9:30 AM to about 11:30 AM. he’s not aggressive or anything. I read on another thread that he might stay out more if I had more in the cage so he diddn’t feel all out in the open. It makes sense to me, but I’m not exactly sure what to put in there. at the moment the cage is 4 ft long, 2 ft wide, and 2 ft tall ( he’s about 1.5 ft himself ). It has a long branch going from the bottom right corner to the top left, a water bowl, and a basking rock ( not heated, but basking ). any ideas on how to furnish? o, by the way, my mother and I are making him a pond to lay in with an airator ( i think thats what it’s called ) so i can have little goldfish in there for him to snack on if he feels the need.

    what type of substrate are you using? if you use dirt then your tegu will dig itself plenty of hides along with the rest of the hides and furniture that you have in the enclosure

    I have cypress mulch, but I was thinking about putting dirt in one side of the cage and see if I can get a few small plants to grow in there. any idea on what plants would be good?

    for a tegu really no plant would survive the diggine and trampling. my best suggestion are fake silk plants.

    I have put "funiture" in with my Arg. B&W. He loves to rearrange but seldom uses it. He prefers to dig in to the cypress bark to "kick back".
    A note for Tegu Girl, do you not know how to spell or were you in a hurry. I am not trying to flame or be rude, just curious as I have seen others do this as well.
