:uder the light i use a thermometer with a prob and it is around 120. also he seems very calm. i can pick him up and he will walk around on my hand and flick his little tounge. i love him!! also can he be fed chicken, and dog food. or should i just stick to crickets? and what is a good substrate for he bottom of his cage?

120 is great or you know 110 or so if it gets to hot on the cool end. Your lucky he's so calm, he must of got used to people being at the pet store. My tegus have been out of hibernation for 3 months and I still can't wait to get home from work to see them and feed them. Dusted Crickets, superworms, and pinky mice are probably the best for him and of course some variety. Yeah you can feed some chicken cubes cooked or raw, but without the skin. You can try raw ground turkey with cricket dust, sardiens, fruit. 6" of moist cypress mulch is good for a substrate.
