I got a Tegu from Agama Int'l March of 2002. I put him along w/2 Box Turtles in an unheated room after (I thought) having emptied their stomachs in about Sept. Here in Chicago, there was a gradual thaw with warmer days and cooler days alternating. About two weeks ago, I brought them upstairs into my apartment. Both turtles have eaten and the Tegu drank some water, but both of his forelegs seem to almost drag, he's a little sluggush, and he wants to still hide himself under something. They're being kept room temperature now and today I put a full-spectrum light over the container they hibernated in. Is there a reason his front legs will not move?
