Finally finished the outdoor rhino iguana cage to move them outdoors. Just like all the tegu cages I layed wire on the bottom before laying sand/dirt on top. For the top wire I went with 1"X1" black coated since I knew they would try to climb to the top. They seemed to like it right away basking and eating. I would like to plant some edible flowers in there soon. I'll start with a big hibiscus and some cactus.
This is one of my baby tegu enclosures. The primary substrate is cypress mulch which is changed often. I use a heat and uv 10.0 bulb, kept a few inches away from the basking area. The hides are either stacks or some cork bark. Also, I keep a branch inside for climbing. Fresh water is changed daily in a shallow dish. At this young age I feed them daily crickets, super worms, and ground meat mix.
Hybrid babies - $250, plus shipping: Father(Blue Tegu) X Mother(Hybrid Tegu - Blue Cross/Red)
These babies are doing great showing a wide variation of color and pattern as they usually do. Growing quickly eating crickets and ground meat mix.
All the tegus love thawed chick feeding day. It's a good way to get them out of their hides, so I used the opportunity to snap a few quick pictures.
