    Cato Growth..

    This is a small update, for those wondering. Just went through a rough time with Cato. Last week I went to his cage to check on him and i noticed he was shaking/twitching. Obviously thats a big sign of MBD and I started feeling horrible. I didn't want to lose another reptile. So i reached out...

    Its been almost 2 months now since i got my snake, and she just shed before she was shipped to me, so I never really witnessed her shed yet, until i took her out for feeding today and saw the shed skin in her cage. I snapped this picture because her colors were amazing, just thought i'd share :)

    Cato Update

    I have had my tegu for 2 weeks now and I have to say he is a completely different lizard. When I first got him, he was really flighty and would run away from me and hiss and do his huffle puff hoopla when I tried to pick him up. Now, if I open the cage and say Cato come here, he will get up and...

    Can anyone say Lazy?

    Shot this last night when I put him back in his cage after feeding him some crickets. Little Cato was so full all he could do was lay and sleep. He is now getting more acclimated with my hand coming in and out of the cage, but i've cut it down to a minimum of only going in there to get water...

    Making a tiny bit of tegu progress

    ( I renamed the tegu from Niko to Cato fyi :p ) It's been 3 days since I got Cato, and he was only born july 2nd. I believe that the reason he is sooo hard to handle and he's super skittish is just because of his size and age. I've been working on handling him daily, about 2-3 times a day for...

Seems pretty calm. Although I put him in the...
